    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at MLive Media Group.

    Interview

    I applied online for an internship then had one phone interview a couple weeks later. About a month after my phone interview, I was offered the position over the phone and I didn't have time to think about it - they needed an answer same-day.

    Interview Questions

    • They basically had me talk about myself and what I'd done. No hard questions at all, more just explaining my skills and how I used them in my current job. They asked me about my career aspirations, too.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at MLive Media Group.

    Interview

    I had a short phone interview, followed by a Skype interview. A month and a half later, I had another Skype interview. Then, I had to do a big video project (that took me at least 20 hours) and pitch them multiple story ideas. TWO MONTHS after that, they ask me to come in in-person. I had connections to this company. I dropped out of the process to maintain some dignity and self respect. They ended up hiring another white male from Michigan, making that 3/3 on their team.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked me to produce a video, even though I was more than qualified, had multiple in-company references, and was willing to relocate. I produced the video, happily. It took me at least 20 hours. They still couldn't make up their mind.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at MLive Media Group.

    Interview

    You get interviewed by various people within the company. A regional type manager, then someone more local - most of the questions are based on sales experience and what would you do if..... questions on handling of customers. They are interested in knowing if you can take a customers needs and turn it into a solution or sale. They hire a lot of people with little or no experience, so you are just basically selling yourself and your personality.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at MLive Media Group (Grand Rapids, MI) in February 2017.

    Interview

    The interview was very self-explanatory and to the point. They didn't have too many questions and the ones they had were very run-of-the-mill interview questions. It took about 45 minutes and they answered the questions I had well. Very nice people.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at MLive Media Group.

    Interview

    Phone, email and in-person interviews. A three-step process with progressively more information asked for and offered at each step. Pleasant first phase. Longer lag between first and second phases. Advice: Ask as many questions as you can during the second phase and be sure to get answers to questions that are asked. The time between the second and third phases was very short. Good response time by company.

    Interview Questions

    • If you were asked to cover this specific beat, what are a few stories you'd like to do in the first three months?   1 Answer

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at MLive Media Group (Ann Arbor, MI).

    Interview

    Met with manager and director for Q&A. Proceeded to more Q&A and role play. The Q&A focused mostly on them getting to know me. Questions such as why are you interested in working here, why do you think you would be a good fit, etc. were asked. The role play consisted of meeting with three people and for me to "sell" marketing services within a fictional scenario. I was provided about one day to prepare for the role play. They offered me a job the following day.

    Sales Representative Interview

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at MLive Media Group (Ann Arbor, MI).

    Interview

    The worst interview process I have ever been thru. Apparently they fail to communicate that you need to be 21-22 years old to work there, because you will be reporting to someone in that age group, which explains the lack of professionalism. They must be getting great leadership from the captain of the ship, because he was very rude too.
