    Managing Editor Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Wichita, KS
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at GateHouse Media (Wichita, KS) in June 2013.

    Interview

    I was working as news editor at another gatehouse paper, and they asked me to take over a one person weekly paper. The interview was rather short. The basically told me what the job involved and asked if i would take it. But the publisher did misrepresent that the job involved and what the working conditions would be. Several things I was told turned out to be just not true. This was no misunderstanding and I should have gotten everything in writing. Lesson learned.

    • Questions were typical, but they kind of knew me so that changed the scope of questions.   1 Answer

    Accountant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Middletown, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at GateHouse Media (Middletown, NY).

    Interview

    I was brought in by outside staffing agency.
    I felt right from the get go they really did not want to interview me.
    They asked dumb and basic questions about accounting skills.
    The position applied for did not match their description of duties during the interview.
    Their description of processes seem antiquated and manual which probably leads to a long dull work day.
    I told agency if they were to make an offer I am not interested.

    Sales Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at GateHouse Media in June 2016.

    Interview

    Simple. Not really an interview. A chat. I learned about the position and started calling 5 months before I got an interview. I waited for 4 months before I received a return call. That should have been a clue to run. I talked with the supervisor three times, but it was never an interview. Finally, she asked when I could start. That was delayed twice. Finally, I was hired, but the company was not yet ready to make a hire.

    Reporter Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at GateHouse Media.

    Interview

    The interview process was fair and straight forward. A portfolio of work was requested. It was explained that the job role would include photography, video, web updates, and social media. The newspaper did not have a staff for composition, so newsroom built and developed all content. Have heard a portfolio was not requested from other interviewees.

    Page Designer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Austin, TX
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at GateHouse Media (Austin, TX).

    Interview

    The interview was very short and straight forward. They definitely up-sold the idea of working for the company and how much growth came with the opportunity. They have a tendency to make the position seem like it allows more creativity than it does. They claim to seek out creative, skilled designers, but it doesn't take either of those to handle a cookie-cutter method of design. Once a creative designer realizes this, the enthusiasm for work declines greatly.
