    I have been working at The Boston Globe

    Pros

    Some fantastic people, new ownership that is trying new things, amazing reporting, fab art directors, and an overall reputable place to be

    Cons

    Some old-world type of thinking. And, like, any newspaper, facing financial struggles and dealing with what the industry will do in the future.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at The Boston Globe.

    Interview Details

    After submitting my resume online, I was contacted by HR a few months later. They had a position that opened up that fit my resume. We had a brief phone interview/screening, then I met with my manager for one in-person interview. They contacted me within the next week and offered me a position.

    Interview Questions
    • The interview included mostly standard interview questions for a sales position. Wanted to know what my style of sales would be like, my past successes, ability to achieve sales quotas, etc. Nothing too difficult to answer.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    The compensation structure is pretty set, since advertising positions are all run under the union. Not much room for negotiation.
