- Application Details
I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks – interviewed at U.S. News & World Report in December 2014.Interview Details
I applied via LinkedIn and was promptly contacted for a phone screen with the HR Manager, another phone screen with the hiring manager and the rest of the team and then an in-person interview.
I want to add that I'd been looking for a job for six months, but was employed at the time so I took my time with looking for the right fit. While I interviewed at multiple places, U.S. News & World Report was by far the most down to earth process that I'd been through. I didn't felt like I was being quizzed, tested or rated on certain responses to questions asked.
The two phone screens, and even the in-person interview felt like a causal conversation just to talk about my background and learn about the position and the company.
While it did take a full month from the screenings to the offer letter, this was all done during the holiday season.Interview Questions
