    Contacted by the recruiter to apply for the job, applied, great phone screen by recruiter. Passed this one and then had a phone screen with the hiring manager which was great!

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Cision in June 2018.

    Interview

    A waste of time. They use recruiters, so most of the time the recruiter is just looking to add to his/her numbers. Applied online, had a discussion about the position, took a grammar test (time goes way too fast), and took a test based on the type of work you'd be doing. I'm almost certain they weren't actually looking for anyone at the time. If you have something else lined up, don't wait for this company to make their decision.

    Inside Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cleveland, OH
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Cision (Cleveland, OH).

    Interview

    I interviewed at the Cleveland office and had an awful experience. The employees seemed miserable. The receptionist was unbelievably rude and condescending, and the interviewers seemed bored and disinterested from the start. It was a complete waste of my time and I’d never recommend this company.

    Interview Questions

    • Asked a lot about what I knew about Cision and PR Newswire. I understand as a potential candidate, it’s my responsibility to come prepared, which is why I did my research ahead of time - but it felt like they were quizzing me and getting way too specific. It’s THEIR job as well to inform me and educate me about the company, yet any time I asked a question, I got a broad, round-about response that in no way answered my question.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Cision (Chicago, IL) in May 2014.

    Interview

    I applied on the Cision Website and on LinkedIn in order to get my foot in the door quicker. Once you apply make sure you contact the hiring manager via email or LinkedIn as this will get you into the door faster.
    1 - Phone Interview from a Cision Recruiter (they seemed very unorganized on the phone)
         a. The Recruiter seem to take 3 to 5 days to get back to me via every email. If Cision is so interested in a potential match, why do they take that long? Plus, the recruiter sent an email about the phone interview being a specific date and called a different day to have it. No professionalism with this recruiter!
         b. I Had another recruiter from Cision contact me via LinkedIn and it seemed that this person was very interested in me. To bad I was unable to take to this recruiter.

    Interview Questions

    • Basic questions and they keep asking the same question in different works. This process is very disorganized!   Answer Question
