    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took a week. I interviewed at Townsquare Media (New York, NY) in September 2014.

    Interview

    Town Square Media contacted me requesting a phone interview. I was passed on to 3 top executives in the company. They acted like loved me. I was asked to come back to meet with people from their LA office. I rearranged my schedule to accommodate them twice. I was finalist, we discussed salary ,benefits & even discussed my future in the company. They said the would make a decision within a day & get back to me. When I sent thank you emails , I received positive responses from the decision makers. Days had passed I wrote the primary decision maker , she told me they hired someone else. She told me to follow up when they have another position. I saw another position months later & applied, she never responded to my email. Very unprofessional.

    Interview Questions

    • A very hostile & rude woman was giving me hypothetical questions about scenarios that would occur in the work day & how I would handle them.   1 Answer

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Townsquare Media.

    Interview

    I made three follow-up calls after applying because I did not receive acknowledgement that my application had been received. After the third call I was invited in for an interview. Seemed to be disorganized and ill-prepared to conduct an interview/hiring process.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing really. It felt like I was leading the discussion. Three phone calls to secure an interview. An interview with the General Manager. Interview three weeks later with someone from corporate. One hour phone interview with Division head two weeks later. Job offer a week later. Start date three weeks later.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    This is what the job pays. Take it or leave it. No negotiation required. Job ad did not specify the salary or a range. No mention in the interview process until close to the end where I was asked what salary I had in mind. When I responded I was told "that shouldn't be a problem." Offer came in $18,000 lower. When I asked why I was told, "that's what the job pays."

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Townsquare Media.

    Interview

    I was recruited in the local market based on my success and knowledge from a previous company. I was put in contact with corporate level execs immediately to answer my questions regarding their digital platform as the local level was unsure. From being employed with the company, and seeing the hiring process, it appears fairly easy depending on the position you're applying for. For sales, you interview with the general manager. If they like you, you move into a second interview with either the Director of Sales or Market Manager and make and offer from there

    Interview Questions

    • NA as I was recruited and it was mainly me interviewing them as I was not actively looking for a change in employmeny   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I compared what I was currently making with what their offer was. The first offer came back extremely low without write offs and added expenditures as well as responsibility. I calculated what I needed to bring home to stay even and negotiated more so it wasn't a lateral move in pay. I reinstated why I would be a valuable asset to the company and my worth. They came back with an acceptable offer that I took. You will be placed on a guarantee for a minimum of 4-6 months. I recommend negotiating a sliding scale as you will most likely need to start your book of business from scratch.

    Editorial Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Townsquare Media in August 2013.

    Interview

    I was already a freelancer when I heard there may be a full-time position opening up. It was through someone I knew and also through someone else I was already working under at the time, so that likely played a role in the ease of the process, as well as the speed in which I was given an offer.

    Interview Questions

    • They didn't actually ask many questions, just gave a list of responsibilities.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    Because the pay wouldn't cover both rent and food for someone in Section 8. Seriously.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Townsquare Media (Windsor, CO).

    Interview

    Disorganized and amateurish. No background checks. No request for references. Hard to get a word in with the DOS. She liked hearing herself talk.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing difficult or unexpected. In fact, surprisingly easy. I couldn't believe I got an offer so easily without offering any proof of my ability or track record.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    They asked for my desired salary for the job. Offered A LOT less. It was a take it or leave it offer.
