    Air Talent Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer

    Interview

    The process was quick and painless. Not your typical corporate long drawn out process. They were direct and to the point. One phone interview then two weeks until one in person interview then waited one week for a call for the offer, then I asked for 24 hours to accept. They were up front and let me know there was one other person they needed to interview.

    Paralegal Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Camarillo, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Salem Media Group (Camarillo, CA).

    Interview

    I was interviewed three times for a position with this company, consisting of one phone interview by HR, an in-person interview by HR, and an in-person interview by the hiring managers. I did not do a thorough research of the company prior to my interviews, but my lack of research was not a problem as the interviewers graciously provided thorough descriptions of the company. They asked questions that gauged my understanding of the requirements of the position, by allowing me ample opportunity to describe my skills and qualifications. Because I was simultaneously interviewing for other companies, I was focused on a personality-corporate culture match. I thought that the questions were all appropriate and logical and that the interviewers were very pleasant and professional. The interview process made me excited about the company, and as a result I withdrew my applications for other companies as soon as I got offered a position by this company.

    Interview

    Was emailed, set up an interview, met with a cool director guy that used to work with Disney. Had no idea this was a Jesus company -- freaked me out. Also -- pro - Trump, couldn't do it. After the interview I was given an assignment to hand over several social campaign strategies for free and MAYBE get called back for an interview...
