    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took a week. I interviewed at Dallas Morning News (Dallas, TX).

    Interview

    The first interview was a phone interview, which lasted about 30 minutes. They then brought me in a few days later for an in-person interview, and I met with two managers. The managers seemed to be on different pages about the job and their overall goals for that role within the department. I never received feedback after that.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Dallas Morning News.

    Interview

    It was a two-day affair. It involved meetings with a bunch of editors and a writing test. I also had lunch and dinner with several employees. Based on what I have experienced in the past, it was a pretty standard process. The editors were cordial and discussed the individual roles they performed at the paper. They asked also about my work history and career goals. Having met with so many people, I heard the same questions multiple times.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Dallas Morning News (Dallas, TX) in April 2015.

    Interview

    3 interviews - I got called back quickly for each interview. The interviewers were all great, nice people. Made you feel comfortable. After the 3rd interview I was told I should hear something next week but it took more than two weeks to hear that they went with another candidate. That was very frustrating and I was truly disappointed because I wanted to work with those people.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Dallas Morning News (Dallas, TX) in January 2014.

    Interview

    We first did a phone interview to determine if I was interested, intelligent and articulate enough to meet. During phase 2 of interview I met my soon to be editor over craft cocktails to discuss the writing project and if I'd be a good fit for it. It was a new blog and only about 10 contributors to that blog total. During our 2md interview we discussed her visions, goals, writing ideas and computer writing apps and format. I also showed her examples of my writing work and did an intro about me project that turned out to be my biography and bi line.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Dallas Morning News.

    Interview

    I was highly impressed by the professionalism and the efficiency with which this interview process was handled. I have been through several of these at other large media companies and this one was the best. The people I met at this company know what they are doing and I believe that would make it a good place to work. The initial contact was over the phone after I applied. Next was a thoughtfully designed skills assessment done at home. The final step was in-person interviews with a number of people over the course of a day. I met people from all areas of the newsroom, including the editor and managing editor.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Dallas Morning News (Dallas, OR) in June 2011.

    Interview

    I was brought in a given a short interview about my planning experience. After 2 weeks I was given an assignment of creating a media plan integrating all of their products. It was hard because I didn't have access to all of their audience data. I left them with hard copies of the plans I had done and was told I was 1 of 3 candidates for 3 positions. So I really thought I had it. They said they would call me the next week and they never did. I finally called 3 weeks later and they said they forgot to call me but I didn't get the job.

    Interview Questions

    • They were more interested in seeing copies of current client plans - which I could not show them.   1 Answer

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Dallas Morning News (Dallas, TX) in May 2011.

    Interview

    Long and tedious and upsets you so much that at the end you don't even want the job. In the interview process they over promise and under delivery. I was mislead on compensation potential. Don't get me wrong it is a good company but it could be so much better if they were able to recruit top level sales people.
