    I worked at KQED

    Pros

    People are dedicated. Easy to become friends with coworkers. Good work/life balance. I found my job here to be fun and fulfilling. I have seen the org move quality employees to other departments when job have been dissolved (But this depends on who your manager is)

    Cons

    Depending on your experience and manager moving up can be near impossible. Best to get experience here and move on to a bigger org.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create more opportunities for staff to develop skill set and grow rather than lose quality employees.
    Also create more opportunity to share mission moments. It is easy to forget why we are there.

    Development Department Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA
    Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at KQED in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I did a phone interview with the position's supervisor (around 30 minutes), and then was invited into the office for a panel interview (around 3 hours). After that, I had a second phone interview with another person from the department. Directly before this, KQED asked me for permission to perform a thorough background check. As they had mentioned they would only be doing background checks on the final candidates for the job, I knew I was being seriously considered. After all of this, I heard nothing back from them, despite emailing for an update and to ask if any other information was needed. Eventually, around 2 weeks after the last communication with them, I called HR to inquire on the status of the position. I was told they had hired someone else. I was very surprised not to have been informed at all, particularly since I had clearly been in the final few candidates. I was incredibly shocked that they were not going to let me know at all about their hiring decision, particularly given how extensive the entire process was.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing too surprising - most questions were very straightforward and directly related to my resume.   Answer Question
