    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Digital First Media in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was given a fairly typical in-person interview. Average questions about the community I was expected to cover, where I see myself in 5 years. Three weeks later I was offered a job, which I accepted. After about a week and a half, and after I'd resigned at my then-current job, I was called to say the job was "frozen" by corporate and I was out of luck and a job.
