Marketing Specialist Interview

Marketing Specialist
Washington, DC

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at U.S. News & World Report in February 2014.

Interview Details – I received an email for a phone interview within the hour of submitting my application. After the phone interview, I was invited in to meet with six people from the Education/Hospitality teams. They were all incredibly friendly and intelligent. However, the process took a while (almost two months) to complete. I was a finalist for the position but never heard back about a decision despite several follow-ups. Really nice group, but the communication could have been better.

Internship Interview

Internship
Washington, DC

I applied online and the process took 3 months - interviewed at U.S. News & World Report in July 2010.

Interview Details – I had a phone interview, then a writing test, then an in-person interview, then another phone interview. After the in-person interview, they invited me to come meet with them in DC (expenses paid) and then waited 2 weeks to tell me that airfare was too high and another phone interview would be better. None of the interviews were very hard but they just took forever to get back with me and after my last phone interview they still haven't sent me a rejection letter. I just didn't feel like they treated me with very much respect throughout the whole process.
