Interaction Designer Interview

Interaction Designer

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Time Warner in January 2008.

Interview Details – Met with the Creative Director and Interaction Design Director. Quite painless interview. I brought in my portfolio but they only looked at it a little bit. The most important thing, I felt, was a match of the personalities. Although, they also had a referal from the Creative Director at America Online, a part of Time Warner. They gave me a call later that day to say that I was hired and I started work a week later.

Interview Question – Why did I want the job?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I was able to negotiate very little. It all goes through the HR department. In the end I was only able to negotiate 5k of pay a year.

Graphic Designer Interview

Graphic Designer
New York, NY

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Time Warner in January 2009.

Interview Details – The people who interviewed me seemed very nice and interested but I was told later that the job was pulled. They also did not seem too sure what the position involved exactly, and were discussing with eachother some misunderstandings as to the exact nature of the job. I left feeling unsure as to what kind of position exactly I was applying for. When I followed up with a call I was told that the department had pulled the job.

Interview Question – If I remember correctly it was along the lines of "tell me a problem you encountered in your work and how you solved the problem"   View Answer

Associate Brand Manager Interview

Associate Brand Manager
Parsippany, NJ

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Time Warner in June 2010.

Interview Details – I applied for a position as an internal candidate, and had worked closely with my interviewers in the past. The people that work in the company are intelligent, savvy, knowledgeable, and professional. The culture of the marketing department is young and trendy. I interviewed with 2 managers, and a senior manager. I have not yet heard back regarding the position, but it has only been one week. I would offer advice of being prepared for situational/behavioral questions. For example, if the magazine you were working on is thinking about increasing the price, how would you go about deciding on implementing the price increase?

Interview Questions

  • How would you determine if you should increase the cover price of a particular magazine?   View Answer
  • Why are you interested in marketing?   Answer Question
  • Give me an example of a time when you implemented a promotion, how did you research it and make the decision?   Answer Question
