    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Time Inc. (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Very extensive interview process to assess your talent. All of the people I met with were smart, knowledgeable, and had interesting careers thus far. They are trying to weed out top notch talent vs. mediocre ones.

    Interview Questions

    • Lots of typical interview questions, general knowledge about the industry, and understanding of recent trends.   Answer Question

    I applied online. I interviewed at Time Inc..

    Interview

    Got phone interview with HR first and was invited to an onsite interview. Onsite interviewers were all very nice and the whole process was pretty laid back. They introduced a lot about the whole team and daily jobs and were willing to answer all questions.

    Senior Designer Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Time Inc. (New York, NY) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Pleasant and formal pre-screen phone interview with talent director. Follow-up on-site interview was not impressionable. Did not get interviewed by managers I was scheduled to meet with. Instead, I was met with two designers of the team. Not a bad thing as you would get to know the daily run of the show. However, they seemed unprepared to interview me with any relevant or useful questions. I felt that I was leading the interview process instead.

    I did email talent director a follow-up email for an update post interview. No response.

    Interview

    Great! Communicative and nice. The hiring manager was kind, and she wrote me a thoughtful email even though I didn't get the offer. The entire process took about 2.2 months, though, so be patient.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Time Inc..

    Interview

    My would be supervisor met me at a restaurant, and basically confirmed that on the strength of the recommendation he was already prepared to recommend I be hired. He then proceeded to list what the job expectations were. He also explained what the responsibilities and tools of the role would be. Both of those were exaggerated beyond reality.

    Interview Questions

    • "You've done that before right?" "that" refers to all the duties he'd listed in our conversation, which I was and am experienced in, but it was a most informal conversation.   1 Answer
