    Interview

    I got the job without much beyond a phone interview and previous experience working with current employees. They hire friends of friends and fire friends just as easily and flippantly.

    Social Video Editor Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Condé Nast (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I was referred by a friend who works there, and was invited in for an interview a week later. I met with the Head of Social Studio and the Director of Post-Production. They both explained the job & workplace at length, and used a lot of buzzwords. They didn't ask me any questions aside from "tell me a little about yourself." If I didn't ask questions at the end of the interview, I wouldn't have talked very much. 2 or 3 weeks later they let me know that the position was given to someone else.

    Interview

    Hiring process was great. The recruiter I spoke with knew exactly what they were looking for. She was honest and straight to the point which is refreshing. First, it was a phone screening interview, followed by 2 in person interviews with your prospective boss and their assistant.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Condé Nast (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Applied through company website, was contacted by a freelance (external) recruiter. Asked me standard questions about my previous work experiences, good conversation. She sent my info along to HR. I was contacted a few days later to set up interview at office with hiring manager. 30 minute (scheduled) interview lasted for 50 minutes. Day after interview, HR contacted me for 3 references, I provided them. Recruiter contacted references. I followed up for hiring status updates with HR and hiring manager - no responses. Completely unprofessional.

    Interview Questions

    • Hiring manager asked for samples of my work, which is not a typical question based on my skill set (not creative). Samples were provided, but this was unexpected.   Answer Question
