    Interview

    Very easy process. I had two interviews. One in person with the GM and one in person with the Sales manager. The second interview was more like a shadow day. They are very nice but its because they have no clue about anything.

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Baltimore Sun Media Group (Baltimore, MD) in September 2012.

    Interview

    Currently employed for approximately seven years. Initially I applied for the Entertainment Directors position at the Carnival Cruise Line at the marina which did not go over well Management there was vague. In the alternative, I heard "The Baltimore Sun" was hiring having a job fair at the same time across the street as published in their paper. So I took a chance and went there in person. The rest is history.

    Co-Op Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Baltimore, MD

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Baltimore Sun Media Group (Baltimore, MD) in December 2010.

    Interview

    Interview consisted of a phone interview, an interview with an employee not directly related to the position, who then called me back for a 1:1 interview with direct supervisor, then that person's direct supervisor (who would have a say in the hiring decision as well), then a short personality test. Offer was communicated less than four days after the final interview; offer letter was received via UPS overnight. Very straightforward, but challenging interview process.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Baltimore Sun Media Group (Baltimore, MD) in March 2010.

    Interview

    I interviewed with the HR manager, then the team leader, then two vice presidents. Months of follow up, during the end of year holidays, on my part, did not produce instant feedback and an offer as I thought it would. Process was just too long and drawn out.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Baltimore Sun Media Group in April 2011.

    Interview

    Phone call, and 2 in person interviews. The office is clean, and You get a parking pass- which is great for stuff downtown. The sales manager and general sales manager interviewed me. They were personable but promised me things that were beyond their power. The sales team of 50 were stand-offish in the begining- but with such a high turnover for staff, the ones that were making good money felt secure and were friendly.

    Negotiation

    No... I was told it was the only compensation option available. Later I found out they lied.
