Interview

The process was easy. Recruiter called me and had two interviews after that. Got a call back 3 weeks later that they passed on me to someone else. At least they called me back.

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Penske Media in Feb 2022

Interview

I had one interview and was surprised to find out that this first interview was with a VP of the company. They told me that they had already narrowed down the pool to a handful of candidates, so I assume this is why I was speaking to a VP. The interview was a phone conversation that went on for about 45 minutes, and I left it feeling very positive after hitting it off with my interviewer. The only major hiccup between us was that I felt the salary range was too low for the role, and they said they would check with their team to see how much it could be moved. Ultimately I found out that the team chose another candidate by an automated, impersonal email two weeks after my interview.

Interview Questions
  • It was a very conversational interview where I was asked about my experience, what my current role was like, and how I would tackle certain tasks and problems.

It was professional and nice. First I had a phone interview with a recruiter. Another interview on zoom with the teammates. Then they asked me to send proof of my work. Nothing crazy

I interviewed at Penske Media

Interview

I suspected the recruiter did not have my resume nearby during my hour-long phone interview as I had to explain my entire work history over a choppy reception. The recruiter seemed hard of hearing and said they do not use wireless earpieces, or as they referred to them as "air...ear buds whatever!" After our call, I realized there were specific aspects to the job description that I wanted to follow up on, but before I knew it, I received a rejection email only hours after that interview. After responding to the rejection, I received separate voicemails from a few people at Penske Media who suggested contacting them for possible freelance work, but I sensed this was to assauge me going through the offputting interview process and not an actual opportunity.

Interview

Very laid back but professional at the same time. I had five interviews over the span of two weeks, but all were handled very positively and very informatively. Each interviewer gave helpful hints on how to communicate with the subsequent interviewer.
