Very Easy Interview

Parenting Magazine Interview

Parenting Magazine
Deerfield Beach, FL

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at South Florida Sun Sentinel in July 2013.

Interview Details – total of 2 interviews- one by HR and one by hiring manager. Very informal and lacked detail. Hiring manager seemed overwhelmed and very unorganized

Interview Question – No difficult questions- just basic selling questions   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – It didn't feel like the manager knew what she was doing

Swing Sales Representative Interview

Swing Sales Representative
Deerfield Beach, FL

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at South Florida Sun Sentinel in June 2013.

Interview Details – The Interview was a bit challenging with situational questions that would have you thinking it through on how to answer them. But overall it was not bad. I interviewed here with 4 different people, and each of them were different, 2 were easy and 2 were difficult. They fire a few questions but also allow a comfortable environment for open communication

Interview Question – How would you attract the younger market to read the newspaper?   Answer Question

Editorial Assistant Interview

Editorial Assistant
Fort Lauderdale, FL

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at South Florida Sun Sentinel in September 2012.

Interview Details – Interview with the Managing Editor and the Section Editor, which was a short, concise interview process. The questions pertained to job history and the role of the job. The overall interview was to see if the Section Editor would like you to work with him. There was not a difficult question, per say. The interview was set in a conversational tone.

Interview Question – Not a difficult question was asking. The difficult statement I received was how do you take initiative in the job?   Answer Question

Reporter Interview

Reporter
Fort Lauderdale, FL

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at South Florida Sun Sentinel in May 2008.

Interview Details – I was asked to stop by for an interview. A week later I was asked to go again to meet and interview with the managing editor. She offered me the position but the pay was very low so I said I would take a few days to think about it. I called back 2 days later and accepted, but was told the position had to be officially open from the HR department. They called me 3 weeks later and asked me to start right away.

Interview Questions

Negotiation Details – Not a lot of room for negotiation. Pay was low but considering the market, it was a good option
