    Advertising Sales Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Cullman, AL

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Community Newspaper Holdings (Cullman, AL) in August 2009.

    Interview

    I saw the posting in the local paper. I sent my resume not knowing who the job was for. It was a general sales help wanted ad. It turned out to be for the newspaper itself. I got the call and went in after hours for the interview. The Ad director and the retail manager were there for the interview. They asked basic questions. I could tell right away that the RM was a guy that liked to hear himself talk. So I quickly started stroking his ego, and I had him in my pocket. The ad manager was a little tougher. She kept telling me the bad parts of the job. I would watch the RMs face as she spoke and knew when she was stretching it trying to scare me off. After that I got a call back to meet with the publisher. He is more like a GM. He asked a lot of questions trying to see how I handled objections. I learned real quick that if I repeated back to him what he said, just with my own words, he ate it up. It wasnt long until I got the offer.

    Managing Editor Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Knox, IN
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Community Newspaper Holdings (Knox, IN).

    Interview

    It was an easy interview process for me, because I already knew my prospective boss at the time, had worked with him several years at a previous job. More a "conversation" than an "interview" really. We discussed ideas I had to improve the little newspaper I was being considered for, which CNHI had just bought a few months previous... my assessment of what it was, and my vision of what it could be.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Community Newspaper Holdings (Lawton, OK) in April 2014.

    Interview

    Spoke via phone, met in person, discussed job with a higher up after that. It was obvious I was qualified; they mainly wanted to truly know WHY I would accept the job. After I finally got there, I certainly understood the question

    Interview Questions

    • Gave me scenarios and asked how I might handle things. However, once there, I realized the problems I would address had nothing to do with the people mentioned - it was actually the big boss who was a poor leader who pitted everyone against each other.   1 Answer
