General News Reporter Interview

No Offer
Negative Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Forbes (New York, NY) in April 2019.

Interview

Applied for the job through Linkedin easy apply. I was contacted a week later by the executive editor of a new department at the company. Initial interview went great, editor seemed nervous about poaching me from my job at the time. I was invited to do a second interview the following week...with constant back and forth communication between us. After a successful second interview, I had to submit a writing test on a Saturday which wasn't a big deal for me. I had a couple hours to write, but the morning of I had to pitch 3 ideas to the editor. He never responded to the pitches (he later said company emails were down) so I chose one of the pitches and wrote a story. He thanked me and apologized profusely. Haven't heard back since.
