    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Crain Communications (New York, NY) in April 2016.

    Interview

    The process began with a brief phone conversation with the HR followed by phone interviews with two managers. I was then called to interview with the hiring manager and HR manager at New York office. Questions were all behavioral and mostly based on my resume. I did my homework by researching a lot about the company and preparing well for the interview. It also helped that I had a lot of questions to ask them. The whole experience was very positive from the beginning until I signed my offer letter. My start date had to be postponed for some reasons and they were very flexible about that.

    Interview

    After files the application I relieved an e-mail and set up an interview date. After settling on a date and time the interview was professional, but laid back. The interviewer was very conversational, but very concise. Overall it was a very pleasant process.

    Intern Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Crain Communications (Detroit, MI) in November 2012.

    Interview

    Standard run-of-the-mill process. A basic phone interview, lots of back and forth via email and then two on-site interviews with leading members of management. While the thought of interviewing at a highly prestigious media giant was in the back of my mind, it was an overwhelmingly great experience. Crain houses some of the greatest minds in the business and they are respectful, courteous and willing to go the extra mile for those who they see fit.

    Marketing Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Crain Communications (Chicago, IL) in October 2010.

    Interview

    I found the positon via job boards online and applied. Someone from the company called me back within a few days. We scheduled a phone interview. The day of the interview I made sure I was prepared and had a quiet location to speak in. 10 mins past our set time, nothing, 30 mins, 60 mins.... nothing. I called her and left a message and NEVER received any call back as an apology or to reschedule. This made me realize I would not want to work for a company that was so unprofessional.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Crain Communications (Detroit, MI) in August 2015.

    Interview

    I had 4 total interviews. It started with the standard phone interview with HR. Immediately after, I was called in for a face-to-face interview the following week with the Marketing Director. That interview lasted about 1-hour and went great. Shortly after, I was called back to meet with the publisher (Dutch) and the Operations Manager. This interview went very smoothly and we all got to know each other very well. The very next day I came back for a final interview with Dutch, the Operations Manager and a couple of Editorial staff members. This interview lasted about 10 minutes. The following day, I was called and offered the job.
