    Marketing Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Cumulus Media.

    Interview

    very laid back and met with Market Manager and explained the position. Informative but this was a new area to me so let him talk more. Didn't fully explain that the salary was only a guarantee for the first year and then the position was straight commission. Start with no existing accounts and have to hunt for everything right off the bat.

    On-Air Personality Interview

    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Cumulus Media (Colorado Springs, CO).

    Interview

    I submitted a resume and was asked to fill out an application, I was interviewed once, we negotiated wages and I was hired all in the same interview.

    The program director and the station manager were both present for the interview and both had interview questions prepared.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    They offered me a rate of pay that I refused, I told them what I expected my income to be and they met me in the middle assuring me that raises would be in the near future. I should have gotten that in writing as I produced the desired outcome but was never compensated for it.
