    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Lee Enterprises (Auburn, NY) in September 2016.

    Interview

    The interview was different because zero questions were asked about, qualifications, Job experience, etc. The hour long interview was of the interviewer speaking about the business their numbers, and the expectations of this job. I would say communication average was 90% them 10% me.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Lee Enterprises (Munster, IN) in August 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and received an email requesting more information about myself. After that, I had a brief phone interview, and was asked to come in for an interview. I was taken to lunch, where I was asked standard background questions. After lunch, we went back to the office, and I was given a couple pages to design as a test to see if I knew what I was doing. After that, I met the team leads and was shown some of what the work entailed.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Lee Enterprises (Madison, WI) in August 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and an HR person called me within a couple of days. She actually wanted to do the phone interview right then, but I asked to reschedule it for the next day since I was busy at the moment. (It seemed weird that they'd want to do the interview immediately without scheduling it ahead of time...) Straightforward phone interview, the questions went on and on and on. There was no conversation, it was very Q and A, and it wasn't a technical interview since it was with HR so it was much more customer service, multiple deadlines, working with clients, working on projects, previous jobs, background etc. Very basic and if you have any previous work experience to draw examples from, you should be fine. Couple of concerns though: the job is hourly and second shift, working from 3pm-11pm or 4pm-12am, including working weekends (although they try to get you two days off in a row). Might not be ideal for everyone. After the phone interview, the design director was supposed to get in touch to arrange an on-site interview. This took over a week and by then I'd been offered another position elsewhere with better hours. Everyone seemed really nice and the work seemed interesting, but the hours would have been an issue as it'd be hard to have a social life.

    The first phase was a phone interview. The interview was an initial screening of general questions and a description of the job. I was then asked to come in for an interview. Various employees interviewed all the potential candidates together. It was not mentioned to any of us that this interview would be a group interview. Each candidate was asked the same question.

    The interview process went fairly quick. We interviewed on a Friday and by the following Tuesday we knew whether we had it or not. They got us processed as new hires and we were starting the following week. Two weeks tops. You start as. A group and then continue as one on one interviews. They were very thorough in explaining the position as well as the benefits included. Being part time is just as nice as full time
