    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.

    Senior Designer Interview

    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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Time Inc. (New York, NY) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Received a call from HR, asked basic questions. Then had two on sites with managers, director, & VP. Everyone was very laid back and cool. If you can explain why you want to work there and what skills you have to offer, you'll be fine.

    Interview

    Disorganized. Interviewed by the person that was leaving the position. No real insight to the role, department, and what is expected of the new hire. Bad interviewer that made me not want to accept the job.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Time Inc. (New York, NY).

    Interview

    1. Phone screen: talked about position and team. They wanted to know about my past projects. It seemed like they were interested in my ability to explain how what I had done in the past could be applied to this role

    2. In person: seemed rather unobtrusive. Other companies had in-depth coding assignments or challenges but Time had simple syntax questions and one or two algorithms
