    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 6+ weeksinterviewed at Time (New York, NY) in June 2011.

    Interview

    In total, had 4 interviews at Time and they don't have the courtesy to follow up. First interviewed with HR in order to be put through to the actual hiring managers. After that, 2 interviews with the same hiring manager, submitted a skills test, and then met for final round with Director and SVP. Said they were looking to hire someone ASAP and should hear from them within a week. It has been over a month and no one has responded to emails or phone calls. In the meantime, I've been contacted by HR for another job opportunity. Experience has left a bad impression of the company, I once revered.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Time.

    Interview

    Had a standard first call with recruiting manager - general fit questions. The main point seemed to be understanding why I wanted the role. This was followed by a few back-to-back interviews in the office. Scheduling was easy and not intrusive on my requirements for my current job. The interviewees were not intense but the interview was not easy: some difficult behavioral questions and a case or two based on a current business challenge facing the company.

    Interview Questions

    • The case studies did not require an in-depth understanding of the business model. However, if one had background in the industry it is a great advantage as I lost a lot of time learning the model in the case interview.   Answer Question

    I went to interview and the hiring manager took forever to come get me so we missed about 20 mins of my supposed 30 min interview. The interview was rushed and forced. I interviewed with Manager of department and it felt forced as well. he asked me all sorts of questions about my experience and it felt like he just didn't think i was the right fit for the job even though it was a contract position

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 8+ monthsinterviewed at Time in November 2013.

    Interview

    The process was very long, totaling about 8 mos. It began with typical HR interviews (after the online application of course) and then long periods of waiting. The final step before I was called by my would-be boss was a video recording on a website. Interviewees had two takes to explain why they were the most creative intern in two minutes. We were only given 72 hours to record the video and send it off.
