    IT Support Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Chicago, IL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Tribune Company in July 2013.

    Interview Details

    Got an email from HR, followed by a phone call to schedule an in-person interview. HR then handed me over to the Technical Support manager who then communicated with me through email. Tech manager scheduled interview with me through email. Came in for the interview, parked in a garage nearby (since the interview was downtown). I waited at the front lobby for the manager to come and escort me to the office/interview site.

    Interview Questions
    • Technical questions regarding command lines and structure of web servers/data structures. The interview specially for the IT division did NOT consist of general questions like "What are your strengths and weaknesses" but rather, straight to the technical aspects.

      The manager did most of the talking regarding their company's background. One of the smoothest interview process that I have ever had.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Application Details

    I interviewed through other source. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Tribune Company in June 2013.

    Interview Details

    I had two phone interviews. The first was with the HR representative. She was very nice and asked the usual interview questions. I tried to ask as many questions as possible and she answered as much as she could. She mentioned that the supervisor would explain the job duties.

    I had the interview with the supervisor and he gave me a brief overview of the job. I think it is a new internship and he wasn't sure exactly what I would focus on. He most;y focused on my background.

    Interview Questions
    • The supervisor asked me about software I had used that wasn't really related to the position. It threw me off a little since I wasn't expecting it.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    They were really reasonable. They are very flexible on hours. The pay they offered was great.
