    Web Producer Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Haymarket Media Group.

    Interview

    It was very informal, approximately 15 minutes and was overall a pleasant experience. No hard questions at all. I thought perhaps I had lost the interview round because the interview process was so quick but I did get the job in the end.

    Reporter Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Haymarket Media Group (New York, NY) in January 2016.

    Interview

    The offices appeared like your typical fast-paced newsroom, but inside the reporter bullpen everyone was very laidback and focused. It was an almost zen like atmosphere in the heart of Midtown.

    The interview went smoothly. I felt as though it was a place where I my writing could flourish and grow.

    Content Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Haymarket Media Group (New York, NY) in January 2015.

    Interview

    Unprofessional interviewers who seemed uninterested and unprepared for interview. Asked few substantial questions and appeared uninterested in their own work, let alone in the candidates they were seeing. Overall, I was not left with a favorable impression of the company based simply on the demeanor of the interviewers.

    Editor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Haymarket Media Group in November 2014.

    Interview

    Haymarket needs to have a much more streamlined process, and needs to involve Human Resources into their interview process. For my process, HR was not involved, and I just got a call from the hiring manager, was offered the job, but then did not hear back from anyone after many follow-up emails. Very unprofessional on their end.

    Digital Editor Interview

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Haymarket Media Group (New York, NY) in March 2014.

    Interview

    After a phone interview with a director supervisor and director, I was asked to come in for a face-to-face interview with several others. While I was told that C-level executives would be at my interview, none were able to attend at the last minute. The interview ran 20-30 minutes behind schedule because they couldn't locate a meeting room.

    Marketing Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Haymarket Media Group (New York, NY) in January 2012.

    Interview

    I found the initial job on Craigslist, and it was originally for a temp position. I was contacted via email and came in to have an interview. I had an verbal interview with my future boss (I don't think they have independent interviewers here). I came in for a second interview. I was picked for an interview because I included a letter of recommendation with my resume when this was not asked. I was told it helped me stand out.

    It was an easy interview.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    I did not negotiate, but I would recommend that someone try it! Why not?

    Campaign Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Twickenham, England (UK)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a week. I interviewed at Haymarket Media Group (Twickenham, England (UK)) in May 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process was guided by a line manager and a senior manager for this role and was a two stage interview.

    For the first stage, the four interviewees are given a basic mathematics test, a prioritisation task, and some mocked up campaign data to analyse, in pairs, provide insight into, and present to the interviewers and other interviewees. The other interviewees were all respectful of each others ideas, and the interviewers went out of their way to make sure everyone felt comfortable and had a good idea of what the company and the role were about.

    After this they answered any questions we had on the role and the company, and gave us more information on what the role would entail (Day-to-day expectancies and a time line of what responsibilities we would be taking up over the first 6 months or so).

    Initially both stages were scheduled to be on the same day however the first stage overran, and so the second stage was moved to the following week. The interviewers were apologetic about this fact and quickly made time in the following week for the second stage.

    The second stage was an individual interview with the line manager and a senior manager for the role.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Haymarket Media Group (London, England (UK)) in August 2016.

    Overall, it was quite a straightforward process. The company got in contact with me after I applied online. I was interviewed by two people that worked there and asked several questions to decipher whether I fit the role. The interviewers were friendly and made you feel comfortable. No question was particularly difficult and they were happy to answer any questions you may have had.
