    Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Charlottesville, VA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Gray Television (Charlottesville, VA) in September 2017.

    Interview

    Beware!
    Started with sending my application in online. About four days later I got a call from the Hiring Manager and we spoke for close to an hour. I was invited to come to the station and meet their team. I was asked to bring references, at least three, I bought four.

    I met with most of the team and my last interview was with the General Sales Manager of the station. He asked for my references. I gave him my list and we spoke for close to fifteen minutes. I was told all positive things and he said he would sit down with everyone and maybe send an offer before the end of the week if I was selected.

    After a week I sent an email to the hiring manager and didn't hear back for another two. I was then told in a very short email that someone else with 10 years more experience got the job. Okay, I moved on. BUT...

    About a week later a reference of mine who owns a local store called me to let me know that the local station had used my name and the contact info I provided and acted like I referred them to sell their services to my reference. Two days later another reference of mine called and told me the same thing. All of my references were cold called and my name was used in their attempt to sell to my references. Very unprofessional!

    Master Control Operator Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Charlottesville, VA
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Gray Television (Charlottesville, VA) in August 2009.

    Interview

    I submitted an application through the HR portion of the website. I was called within a week and went in for an interview with the Master Control Op Manager and the Senior Broadcast Engineer. The interview was fairly straightforward. I had no experience. I then had to come in for a working interview, which was fairly easy even though right away I could tell that the responsibilities for this position far outweighed the pay.
