    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Media General in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    The Marketing Director responded to my email the next day. I couldn't make it to the interview right away so he was nice and waited 2 weeks for me. The interview was very friendly and casual. I got a tour of the TV station and got introduced to everyone who was there. All very friendly. I received an offer after the tour but could not accept because the pay was too low.
