    Marketing Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at SourceMedia (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Long. Held over 2 separate days with 4-5 30 minute interviews each. Very unorganized, HR was unprofessional, some of the interviewers were rude with no questions prepared and ignoring the interview to email people on their phone.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing was too challenging because it felt like no one knew what they were hiring for.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No negotiation whatsoever. But, I needed a job. Also learned there are no raises, reviews, or promotions ever either.

    Editor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at SourceMedia (New York, NY) in August 2010.

    Interview

    Collegial and very interested in finding the right person for the job. Met nearly everyone up the organization chart. Impression of the office environment was that it was unusually business-like for publishing company. May not be a comfortable fit for the kinds of "square pegs" that often go into journalism.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at SourceMedia (New York, NY) in March 2012.

    Interview

    Spoke with a three people. Everyone was very friendly, and the manager even stopped in to say hi. Interview process was relaxed, everyone seemed to get along. They all took turns asking questions. They questioned me about my skills, and asked personal questions about lifestyle, to see how I would fit into their culture. They described the job, it seemed like they were trying to gauge my interest in the role. Ended the interview saying that they would get in touch. They did within the week.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at SourceMedia (New York, NY) in June 2014.

    I meet with HR and with management the same day on a Wed. and was made an offer by Friday. I think it depends on the position you are applying for. Now, being here I have seen longer interview processes. I would say overall the process is average.

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at SourceMedia (Brooklyn, NY) in January 2014.

    Interview

    Tell me about a situation, behavior type questions. There was a writing test. They did not give me a proper description of what I was going to be doing. So look at the job description carefully on your own otherwise, you might even end up in a different job at the company. Not joking, it almost happened to me.

    • Tell me about a situation, behavior type questions. There was a writing test. Make sure you interview them too. This will be your new home and make sure you are ready to move in.   Answer Question
