    Digital Learning Specialist Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Cox Media Group (Atlanta, GA) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Two phone interviews and an in-person - Both were not too difficult - However I feel the job posting was misleading. It seemed to be an entry-level position. However, the company actually preferred much more experience. Still the process was not too difficult and the ppl involved were kind.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Cox Media Group.

    Interview

    Easy and non-intimidating. I interviewed first for an intern position. Felt less like an interview and more like a normal get-to-know-you discussion. After my internship, I was asked to stay on. This interview was with the operations manager and promotion's director. Much longer process with a mix of structured and get-to-know-you questions.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Cox Media Group.

    Interview

    Long and drawn out they'll put you through 4 to 5 interviews and have you take an assessment. They'll sell the job to you, ask about CRM system they don't even have one, very unorganized. It's all who pretends to be "friends" with the Managers gets the accounts or those who have been there - recently turn over is high.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Cox Media Group in March 2017.

    Interview

    Sent in resume to corporate HR system. A recruiter called to do a short interview. Interview lasted a little over an hour. It looked to have gone well and I was told to follow up a couple of days later. I emailed as requested and received no reply. Recruiter never answered any emails afterwards. I thought that to take up someone's time for such a long interview should warrant feedback or reply.

    It was very unorganized with no real structure to the interview. I saw not met by the person I was sent to meet and once in the interview I was greeted by who ever was just available at the time. I don not think I was given a fair interview.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Cox Media Group.

    Interview

    Quick and structured process, comfortable and friendly. First there is a quick phone interview and when that is done they bring you in to speak with the promo director for a specific station, the one in which you applied to, then you talk for about 20 minutes. It's pretty direct whether you will be hired or not, they don't waste time throughout the whole interview process. Yours nor theirs.

Did a few whtieboarding questions, and had a culture screening to check that out.
