    I worked at Astral Media full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Motivated, enthusiastic employees. Collaborative atmosphere, where initiative is welcome. Lots of meetings, but things are getting accomplished. Clear objectives that are laid out for everyone to understand how they contribute to the company. Work hard, but play hard too, with fun employee events.

    Cons

    Small company, so not as many opportunities to move ahead as in a larger organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wish it could have stayed like that forever :(

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a dayinterviewed at Astral Media.

    Interview Details

    had one interview asking some technical questions about web development mainly front end...interviewer was asking questions that i didnt know to memerize off hand such as random css attributes, and basic questions that dont mean anything as to when to use an id or a class. the interviewer didnt understand that you can also use an id in css, but was adamant i explain to him how the getelementbyID works in JS, i guess he wasnt aware of the getelementbyclassName LOL...and especially when using jquery you can select on class or id, so to be stuck on using id's was annoying.

    Interview Questions
    • was being asked less practical but theoretical questions, interviewer was more cocky than for his own good, wasnt interested in being asked about the theory of front end web, when its all practical, interviewer was asking googleable questions, was a turn off.   Answer Question
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview
