    Advertising Sales Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Interview

    Basic phone screen on Skype. I wore a suit and tie and the interviewer was in sweat pants looking down at the screen. The worst first interview ever. Although I was not a fit the position the interviewer was as if she was just out of college with no experience, no ability to connect or relate to people in general. Tegna is a great company but based on this experience I would never apply for another position. Very disappointed with the quality of the interviewer. The position was for a local station not national position. At the end of interviews about 50% of the time I will reapply for other jobs even if no fit for that position. For Tegna that is not even a consideration for me. Yes. It was that bad. She could not even define the products I would be selling or the geographical limits if the territory.

    Negative Experience

    Application

    The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at TEGNA in January 2016.

    Interview

    I was initially contacted by a recruiter and we set up a Skype interview. Pretty basic questions for a sales role. She told me I'd be moving onto the next round with the hiring manager. I was then contacted by an assistant to set up another Skype interview since i lived out of state. Again pretty basic sales questions. Was told they were very impressed and I'd hear from them soon. Very positive feedback. After reaching out to them multiple times in the following month I finally heard back from the recruiter to hear that I didn't have as much experience as they were hoping for. I had twice the amount of experience they listed as required on their posting. Made for a very negative experience overall.

    First, there is an introductory interview, then you go on to a more formal interview. It is important to follow up with whoever you interviewed with, they are looking for people to stay in contact with them.

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at TEGNA (Atlanta, GA) in June 2014.

    The interview process was very casual and informal. I came into the office and met with the hiring manager who was a great guy and very relaxed. He told me honestly about the pros and cons of the business and asked me a lot of very genuine questions about what I was looking for. It was a great experience overall.

    Interview

    Very easy, have to be able to talk and show you're determined to do the job. If you are organized and don't mind a slow pace it's a good job.
