    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Crain Communications in February 2010.

    Interview Details

    Inexperienced management interviewer, offices very outdated at this location. People not too friendly, seems there is no connection between employees. Initial phone interview not hard - inexperienced again. Management comes across as everything is wonderful there, but the vibe in the personal interview appeared not to be good.

    Negotiate for the highest salary possible due to non existent raises in the future.
