Very Easy Interview

Direct Sales Representative (IH) Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
College Park, NY

I applied through a recruiter and the process took a day - interviewed at Time Warner in October 2013.

Interview Details – Probably the worst interview I have ever been on. The "recruiter" contacted me about a month after I had applied for a different position with the company. She emailed and called several times and explained to me that I had a good background for the job due to my previous alarm tech experience. I had to take 2 buses and a train over to College Park, Queens, and take off from my hourly paid job, for the interview.
   The interview was supposed to start at 1:30 pm. I got there at 1:00 pm and did not get interviewed until 3:30 pm. The "recruiter" had walked passed me and the other candidate at least a dozen times. We signed in, etc...
   The interview lasted 5 minutes and all they did was rudely explain to me how unqualified I was for the job.
  Why did they ask me in?

Interview Question – No difficult questions. It's a sales job for alarm systems. They don't care if you know anything about alarms.   Answer Question

How did you deal with conflict with clients and with your team

Time Warner College Associate Program Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Burbank, CA

I applied online and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Time Warner in June 2011.

Interview Details – I was first contacted by an HR representative. She was very nice and informed me that the position I applied for was taken, but that my resume fit in well at another department. She subsequently asked if I was interested.

I said yes, so she then scheduled me for an interview. This interview lasted about 20-30 minutes and largely consisted of general questions about my resume. I didn't realize this, but the other candidates for the position were all in the LA area and had their interview in person. Though I didn't get offered the internship, I was contacted the next day from another HR rep from Warner Brothers Television.

This HR rep informed me that I was the second choice for the internship that I had just interviewed for, but that they had forwarded my name to her for a position she had. We scheduled an interview, but it got postponed by a week because the interviewer was busy. By this time, I had already found an internship somewhere else, so I decided that it wasn't worth my time.

Senior Vendor Manager Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Herndon, VA

The process took 2 months - interviewed at Time Warner in September 2011.

Interview Details – The whole process was extremely slow and I found the hiring manager to be indecisive. I had initially applied to an advertised position on Indeed.com and received an email from a recruiter approximately one week later indicating he would like to perform an initial phone screen. After speaking with the recruiter I was asked to hold another phone call with the hiring manager. Two weeks into the process I had my phone interview with the hiring manager (which went well) but at the end of the call was informed that I would not receive any feedback for at least two weeks as he was going on vacation for one week and then would be traveling on business the following week. Finally after a month into the process I received another email from an HR coordinator asking for my availability to come into the Herndon office for a face-to-face final interview with a couple of key stakeholders. I agreed and the next week went to their office where I ended up meeting with the hiring manager for all of 35 minutes and was informed the other person I were to meet with called out sick for this day. Also, I was informed this was not the “final” interview as I was led to believe but that I would have to come back again to speak with some more folks. This would also not occur for an additional two weeks due to more business travel on their end. Finally, two months into the process I received a canned email stating the position would not be filled at this time due to internal budgeting constraints. What a big waste of time and a complete hassle for no decision.

Sourcing Manager Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
New York, NY

I applied online and the process took 4 months - interviewed at Time Warner in April 2011.

Interview Details – It first started with a phone interview with HR, then they brought me in the following week to meet with a HR director, the hiring manager and the VP of the department. Questions were easy, smooth process and constant reinforcement that I was a solid candidate, at least for a 2nd interview. So after 4 months had passed and constant emails with HR saying the process is delayed, they found a candidate with no feedback. Terrible communication, poor management of interview process.

Interview Question – Really simple questions on experience and some scenario based questions on to handle certain situations.   Answer Question

Production Intern Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
New York, NY

The process took 3 days - interviewed at Time Warner in April 2009.

Interview Details – It was very easy to work with the recruiting coordinator to set up an initial interview after that was offered. He was very friendly but asked very specific questions about my ability to do the job. He also referenced some work by a professor that had written me a recommendation. A week or two later I heard back and was asked to set up a phone interview with the two people who would supervise me detailing the more specific functions of the job and how I would react to them. They also asked the namers of three additional references they could call. About a week later I received an offer.

Interview Question – At times we produce special feature issues which provide a detailed look at a topic that we believe would be of interest to our customers. For instance, a magazine devoted to Harry Potter. What topic would you consider using for one of these and how would you market it? To whom? Why?   Answer Question

Vice President, Mobile Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
New York, NY

I applied through a recruiter and the process took a day - interviewed at Time Warner in May 2010.

Interview Details – Interview was for a new, strategic position in Atlanta, GA. The internal recruiter was more focussed on my willingness to relocate (away from the tri-state area,) than on the fit for the position. Although follow up was indicated, the recruiter did not respond to calls or emails and no resolution (other than silence,) was made.

Interview Question – Tell me about yourself.   Answer Question
