    Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Huffington Post (New York, NY) in October 2015.

    Interview

    I spoke to a recruiter over the phone and was asked pretty standard interview questions. From the phone conversation, I started to suspect that it wasn't a fit and they were looking to pay lower than my salary range. The recruiter ended the conversation by saying she would get back to me by the end of the week about the next round of interviews. I never heard back from her at the end of the week so I sent an email to follow up. I never even got a courtesy of a reply from that email, which I found very unprofessional especially considering I was referred by a friend of the hiring manager.

    Interview

    We had one-on-one interviews with a supervising producer. They handed us an assignment and asked that we submit the completed task later that evening. We were asked to produce faux news assignments prior to the launch of HuffPost Live. From there we were brought into a panel to discuss the future of the show. We were hired from there.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Huffington Post in March 2014.

    Interview

    A Recruitment Consultant at The Huffington Post contacted me through linked in . We just had exchange of emails as he was busy , he told me to contact the hiring manager directly.

    Hiring manager never responded the email, so I called his desk and he gave me an appointment. He re scheduled as he had a production issue that day and did set up another day.

    On the other day of the appointment he neither answered the phone nor did he email me about cancelling the appointment.

    When I tried to reach the recruitment consultant through linked in it said "You are no longer authorized to message this member."

    It was such a lack of professionalism. It was really an unpleasant experience. We expect some form of communication if you setup a time with your candidate.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience

    Interview

    The process was pleasant, but very very very long. More so on the HR side than on the technical interview side. The interviewers were pleasant for the most part and overall the initial prospect was nothing out of the ordinary. The interview style was standard of what most software developers are used to.

    two phone calls, one skype, then an offer. Casual, fun conversation. Easy to feed off the interviewer's body language and responses. No crazy, google-esque, "How many windows are there in New York City?" type of critical thinking questions.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Huffington Post (New York, NY) in September 2012.

    Interview

    Communications and planning via AOL recruiting was prompt.

    Interview was three stages. The first was technical, with an on the spot whiteboard Q&A of PHP and MySQL esoterica. The second was the "personality fit" interview. The third was supposed to be an over the phone practical development exercise, though this never materialized as I'd apparently been screened out by the time I'd completed second part of the interview.
