    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Martha Stewart Living.

    Interview

    I applied online and within a couple days I got an email back from a person in HR saying they wanted to schedule a phone screening interview. We got that scheduled and she said she would then pass my resume along the marketing director. I heard back from the lady I had a phone screen with who said that the marketing department would like to sent up an interview with me and that was quite the process a lot of loss of communication. I kept having to reach out to explain I was still interested. We finally got a Skype interview set up and I thought it went well I thought we really got along. I had this interview on a Thursday and she said I would hear back either way by Monday. I waited until Friday of the week I was told I would hear back and sent an email still expressing my interest. I have not heard anything since.
