    I worked at Idearc Media full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The company is not what it used to be. The company has gone through many changes and is continuing to go through changes. The best thing about the company are its people but many of the best people are leaving as they realize it's not what it used to be.

    Cons

    Change for the sake of change. It's good that they constantly add new products but then set unrealistic goals to the new products even if the product is not a good for clients.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value your people, seek their feedback, and pay attention to why your best people are all looking for new jobs!

    Sales Interview

    Application Details

    The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Idearc Media in December 2009.

    Interview Details

    Standard interview except for the role play. Was sent basic info via email ahead of time and had to prepare a sales presentation as a role play. The info they sent and what they expected in the role play were somewhat conflicting.

    They were going through restructuring and exiting bankruptcy so there seemed to be a lot of confusion.

    While I was waiting in the reception area before the interview, I heard the receptionist take a complaint call from someone who wanted to cancel their ad. The receptionist seemed less than helpful and it seemed like a common occurance.

    I was wiling to take the position on a short term basis if needed (was unemployed - recently laid off at the time) but I knew I wouldn't enjoy it on a long term basis,
