    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied through other source – interviewed at TheStreet.

    Interview Details

    I had one of the most pleasurable experiences interviewing here, I was able to relax and felt comfortable saying "I don't know" but demonstrated passion that the hiring manager (Director at the time) realized my passion. I got to speak to him and a couple of my soon to be coworkers and a few days later was extended the offer. The role prepared me with a serious injection of real world engineering at web scale that got me thinking about the next generation technology I've invented since.

    Interview Questions
    • The question were engineering related and made sense for the context of the role I would be tasked to.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    The offer was pretty much perfectly in line with the regional average for that role in the area. I did not ask to renegotiate the salary.

    Journalist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6+ weeksinterviewed at TheStreet in October 2009.

    Interview Details

    Hiring process was long, but not difficult. You will interview with editors, not HR, which is good, unlike some other news companies that make you interview with clueless HR people before even speaking to an editor. Also, does not make you take some lame reporting test which wastes time, like Bloomberg and the rest. You just sit and talk to editors and if you interview well and have skills as financial journalist or master's in journalism and interest in financial news...

    Interview Questions
    • None in particular. Difficulty is in getting this company to move on making hires. Not financially stable.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Company is not financially secure and hasn't had profits in some time, therefore, negotiation was short. I rejected lowball offer, they raised, but not by significant amount for a NY City job. No great benefits or bonuses to be had for newsroom staff as far as I know given current financial difficulties for company. They sometimes offer very small bonuses and stock options were offered by new CEO, but these options are WAY underwater (ie not even close to being worth even one cent to an employee at present).
