    Intern Interview

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    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.

    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
