    Account Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Hearst.

    Interview

    Interview was more like a conversation. Not too much pressure, but enough to make sure you answered quickly with applicable answers. There were 2 different interviews with two different managers. They try to get a feel for your personality, not just your skill and education.

    Interview

    Took three separate interviews before I was given a task to make sure I was fit for the position. They did not reimburse for my travel (I took a $40 dollar train three times from my university).

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Hearst in March 2017.

    Interview

    Waste of time. 2 in-person interviews and they present you a design "test." You basically waste hours of your life designing for them with no compensation. No response afterwards. Typical.

    Producer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Hearst (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Phone screening by someone unrelated to my team, phone call with manager, in person interview with manager, their manager, and site director. Overall was unnecessarily intimidating, but then again that's the vibe of the company as a whole. I felt in general the questions were not difficult, it was just the attitude that was off.

    Data Science Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Hearst (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I was contacted by the internal recruiter right away to set up a phone interview. Did the phone interview and then was invited in for an in-person that was going to have a technical test. I was supposed to meet with 3 people in-person but one of them had a meeting so I only met with two and did the technical test. Technical test went fine and they told me I would definitely hear back...you know what's coming next.

    After not hearing anything for a week I contacted the recruiter and she didn't respond. So I waited another week and tried calling her. No response to that either.

    Assistant Editor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Hearst.

    Interview

    The interview process itself was fairly simple - the person I spoke with seemed pleasant, and we had a fairly smooth conversation. They asked me to complete an edit test for consideration, which I completed and submitted a day later but never heard from them again. This was frustrating, to say the very least.

Very unprofessional.
