    Pros

    Lots of beautiful people. In every sense of the word. The management is fair and balanced. Love the culture. People are friendly. Especially if you're a designer. You get treated really well. Awesome for gay parents. Women are treated well. And they have interesting international policies.

    Cons

    Long hours, variable bonus, weird hiring & tiring & firing policies. Double speak, excision from meetings, and lots of hard work.

    Advice to Management

    Stay clean, mean, and super green. You guys are fighting the good fight, and I'm proud to have this on my resume. All the best.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Huffington Post (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Huff Post was advertising numerous job openings so I sent my resume and cover letter to the indicated address. A few days later I got a response asking for a time for an interview. We set up an interview, which lasted about 30 minutes. I was asked about my background, what kind of news I'm interested in and how I use social media. I was then welcomed to ask any questions I had, which I did. The editor emailed me back a few days later saying they liked my background but wanted someone with more breaking news experience.

    Interview Questions

    • - How do you use Twitter for professional purposes? - What's a story out right now that you think should be covered? - Do you have a specialization/beat? - Are you comfortable working a desk job?   Answer Question
