    Media Advertising Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Gaithersburg, MD
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Clipper Magazine (Gaithersburg, MD) in October 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process consisted of a phone interview with a company recruiter .
    Then I went to a face to face meeting in Gaithersburg with the field manager and the regional manager which i met at the Hilton Hotel for over an hour.
    Then a week later i was contacted by Human resources and was asked to e-mail over three professional references.

    After a week went by i sent an e-mail to the HR contact to see if they had contacted my references and got a reply back that they did not think that my experienced matched up to the position .
    What i do not understand was why they asked for the references a week after the interview if they were not going to go forward , Especially since they did not call any of the references.
    My feeling was that if i did not send the e-mail to inquire about my references they would have not felt the need to contact me and tell me anything .

    Interview

    The hiring manager did all the talking. There was another employee in the interview but he didn't add anything. I barely said a word and somehow was hired. I found it very odd.

    Graphic Artist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Lancaster, PA
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Clipper Magazine (Lancaster, PA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    First I met with the HR director, talked about past experience and presented portfolio. Then I took an InDesign assessment test which evaluated a basic understanding of InDesign and ability to design. The test involved being given some basic copy, stock images, and general directions for creating a typical ad and having about an hour to design it. About a week later, I met with the Creative Director and several other Art Directors and department mangers in a group style interview to present my portfolio for the second time. The HR director, followed up with me about 2 weeks afterwards, although I didn't follow through with the offer.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Clipper Magazine.

    Interview

    Phone, online application, then in person with manager which was scheduled at a hotel for the end of day. It was pretty fast considering how long and how many steps a lot of companies take before they even grant you an in person interview.

    Multimedia Advertising Sales Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Clipper Magazine in August 2014.

    Interview

    Recruiter found my profile on LinkedIn. Aggressively called and emailed. Opportunity looked like it could have potential. Fine, I'll do a phone interview. Recruiter didn't call at the appointed time. Had to call her. "Oops! Sorry!" First words out of her mouth were "selling space in print magazine." Not multimedia, not integrated marketing...print. Print is on life support kept alive only by the revenues from digital, email.

    AND, its strictly cold-calling. No lead generation at all. Forget it. Thanks, bye.

    Interview Questions

    • Its all cold calling; is that alright with you?   1 Answer
