    Reporter Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Argus Media.

    Interview

    There is a writing and math test and then in-person interviews with the editor, bureau chief, and the managing editor of the Americas. It generally covered the typical interview questions. You don't need to know too much about your market going in, they will train you.

    Market Reporter Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Argus Media.

    Interview

    Simple phone interview followed up by interview with manager in city where position is located. There was no funding for travelling for the interview, which was quite expensive. Additionally, it took a month and a couple of emails from me before I was informed of their decision. Overall I would say Argus needs to majorly improve their communication with candidates. Perhaps my experience was a one-off, but regardless, I found it off-putting.

    Human Resources Interview

    Easy Interview

    Interview

    Phone pre-screen was going well and the Human Resource person was nice up until she tried to repeat my past positions back to me. "So basically you were just an Admin Assistant." No, I wasn't but thanks for diminishing my past titles and all my hard work. Then in my rejection email, she had the nerve to say "Thank you for telling me your experience as an HR Generalist and an Administrative Assistant". First of all, administrative assistant was NEVER my job title in my past position. For the Human Resource person to diminish the positions I've held and the hard work I've done was such a complete turn off. I work in HR myself and that was just not acceptable and it really set a tone if I were to move forward in the interview process.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Argus Media.

    Interview

    Initial phone screening with HR which was very simple and dealt with your background. Next step was to come in to do a writing and math exam. The writing exam was simple, but I got short on time with the math test. The math test was like an SAT exam, but no calculator. Last step was a group panel with six different editors.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Argus Media (Houston, TX) in October 2015.

    Interview

    Writing exercise and math/puzzle test, about 2 hours. Pretty straightforward. Called back for 2-hour meeting with various editors. Everyone was friendly, but only one person seemed really pumped about the work. They kept asking if the job "sounds too boring." Off-putting.
