- Application Details
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks – interviewed at Metroland Media Group in January 2015.Interview Details
A very technical "pop quiz" phone interview, which I was told I did incredibly well on. I immediately got a call for two back to back in-person interviews the next day. I went to both interviews, and I got the feeling they went very well (both went well over the allotted time). Both were technical, but not as intensive and straight-forward as the phone conversation.
After the interviews, I sent an e-mail to each interviewer thanking them for their time. I heard back in an e-mail a week later, that they appreciated me coming in and that they were working out the details with HR beforehand and that I would be hearing from them shortly.
I never heard from them again.Interview Questions
