    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at ION Media Networks (New York, NY) in March 2011.

    Interview

    Very strange process. They lack a true human resource department. When I was being interviewed the interviewer was on her blackberry while asking questions. She had no idea about the position and the industry and was extremely pompous

    Negotiation

    It was odd. they haggled about compensation, did not put anything in writing concerning the bonus, and were vague about vacation time and benefits. I needed a job so I took it.

    Station Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Nashville, TN
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at ION Media Networks (Nashville, TN) in June 2007.

    Interview

    I went into this interview knowing I wasn't qualified for the job. I'm a producer, they were looking for a Station Manager - someone to deal with broadcast towers, ad sales, etc.

    The interviewer read from a list of questions she seemed to have found on the internet. "What are your strengths? What are your weaknesses? Tell me about this. Tell me about that." I felt like my answers were pretty good, but every time I finished talking there would be an awkward silence, and then she would look to her list for the next question. I felt like I was 4 times smarter than this woman, and that I came across as someone who could do the job. But I never got a call back.
