    I applied online. I interviewed at Time Inc. (Bengaluru (India)) in August 2017.

    Interview

    They asked me to come over via a recruitment site for a face to face interview. However when i got there, they asked me to take a analysis test. The test did not make too much sense to me and i could not get through it unfortunately.
    The interviewers were friendly but i feel that they should communicate the interview process to the candidates better.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Time Inc. (New York, NY) in December 2015.

    Interview

    Recruiter contacted me on LinkedIn. Preliminary phone screen went well. I scheduled a meeting with the Consumer Marketing Recruiting Manager and an excel logic test at Time inc Headquarters for the following week. At the interview, the recruiting manager was rather brusque. I was asked to go over my resume and then told mid-presentation to tell it a different way. In the middle of the interview someone else came into the room and the recruiting manager left the room for five minutes to meet someone else. It interrupted the flow of the interview. I was then told that I would take the excel test and then be brought back to so that I could ask some questions. I took the excel test and was told that the interview was done. While I was walking out the door, the manager asked as an afterthought if I had any questions. I was told I would be notified if I was under consideration. Over, one month later I had no contact from Time Inc. Very negative experience.
