    I have been working at Chicago Tribune full-time (more than an year)


    Work life balance was very fair. management was fun and the day itself was a good time. great co workers and fun atmosphere for an entry level role


    not tons of room for growth. pay was not the best need to hit all goals to make good commision which isnt very easy and a lot depends on which book of business you are given

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what your doing the issues stem way above sales managers. managers seem to want the best for their teams

    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Chicago Tribune in July 2013.

    Interview Details

    I applied online at the Tribune website and about 2 days later I received a call from a recruiter. There a total of two interviews that take place before an offer is given, the first is an over the phone interview basically letting the recruiter know more about you (standard questions like what are your greatest accomplishments and examples of when you gave great customer service), After the initial interview I was asked to come in for a physical interview at the Tribune tower. The second interview consisted of a spelling test (it is a bit tricky in the sense that a couple of words will have you second guessing yourself, but over all not too bad. Make sure you know your I's before E's and research commonly misspelled words). After I passed the spelling test (the second interview only happens after the spelling test portion is passed) I was then walked into a conference room where I was met by two hiring managers. The second interview overall focuses more on your customer service skills and phone etiquette ( this is an entry level position so you would have to unfortunately start here before moving up in the company). A week later I was given the job offer.
