    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at F+W, a Content + eCommerce Company in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online. About a week later, I received an email from a HR partner asking to set up an initial screening interview. The call lasted about 45 minutes and the HR woman was very nice. She told me that a particular individual would be handling the hiring for the position and said that I would hear back from that individual by the middle of the next week. That individual never contacted me, however, the HR woman did that Friday and scheduled another interview.

    Second interview was much shorter, but I thought it went well. Less than 30 minutes after we hung up, I got an email saying that the position had been filled.
