    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at SourceMedia (New York, NY) in June 2014.

    Interview

    I meet with HR and with management the same day on a Wed. and was made an offer by Friday. I think it depends on the position you are applying for. Now, being here I have seen longer interview processes. I would say overall the process is average.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at SourceMedia (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Long. Held over 2 separate days with 4-5 30 minute interviews each. Very unorganized, HR was unprofessional, some of the interviewers were rude with no questions prepared and ignoring the interview to email people on their phone.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing was too challenging because it felt like no one knew what they were hiring for.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No negotiation whatsoever. But, I needed a job. Also learned there are no raises, reviews, or promotions ever either.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed at SourceMedia (New York, NY) in August 2010.

    Interview

    Collegial and very interested in finding the right person for the job. Met nearly everyone up the organization chart. Impression of the office environment was that it was unusually business-like for publishing company. May not be a comfortable fit for the kinds of "square pegs" that often go into journalism.
