I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Summit Business Media in April 2010.
Interview Details – It was a pretty straightforward and painless process. 1 phone interview, 1 in-person interview. Very honest and upfront about the benefits, company culture, etc. Job description discussed was quite pared down in comparison to actual scope of the job. I met/spoke with several managers during the interview and all were very conversational-style interviews. My entire in-person interview lasted about 1.5-2 hours. I was notified that I was selected for the position within 1-2 days of the in-person interview, so I didn't have to wait forever to find out. In all, the time from when I submitted my resume, to receiving the offer was about 2 weeks total.
Interview Question – What are your salary expectations? What was your starting and ending salary at your prior (or current) position? View Answer
Negotiation Details – Yes, I was able to negotiate, providing very valid reasons as to why the initial offer was too low. Settled on a very slightly higher starting salary. I would suggest negotiating for all you can get, because salary reviews/raises are not negotiable... you get your x% raise and that's it. You can apply for new positions/promotions within the company and renegotiate salary then, but once you settle for a salary at your position, you're pretty much stuck with the small annual raise regardless.
