    The Recruiter at Time Inc. was very helpful and responsive. My interviewers were very warm and personable. One of the most important factors for me when determining whether to accept a job is its cultural vibe, and this seemed like a perfect match for me. Time Inc. seems to value and push for a very healthy work and life balance.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Time (New York, NY) in January 2015.

    Interview

    The interviews weren't bad other than the fact that I had FIVE in person interviews with seven executive over the course of three weeks for an entry level job. Thankfully, my current job at the time was relatively close otherwise I don't think it would've been possible to continue in the interview process.
