    Graphic Designer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Denver, CO
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Tribune Media (Denver, CO) in May 2018.

    Interview

    After my application, I was immediately contacted by the hiring manager. Established a really great rapport right out of the gate, and looked forward to next steps. Unfortunately, the job posting did not mention a "local candidates only" disclaimer, or a mention that flying in for an interview would have to be an out of pocket expense. Bit of a miss there. An additional callout is that the duties for the position were quite experienced, but had a generic understated title attached to the role. Typical corporate HR labeling.

    Flew out, and had a great onsite with the hiring manager and the team. Two weeks after that I was contacted and informed that the job responsibilities had changed, and had been filled with a more junior candidate. Very disappointing. Time is money on both sides of the hiring process, and it's frustrating to have such a drawn out experience regardless of the business reasons involved. While absolutely excited about the location, facilities, and role - I would be cautious pursuing a future opportunity.

    Account Executive Interview

    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Tribune Media (Los Angeles, CA) in December 2017.

    Interview

    First they called out of the blue to get a feel of my interest and phone demeanor. Then they scheduled an in-person with two sales managers. They decided they liked me and had me meet the VP of the network who gave me a tour of the facilities and asked me a few questions and asked if I had any questions for her. Next step is a personality assessment which asks a number of personality questions and even some math and number pattern questions. After that they give you a scenario which you then are required to present to their team. After that they make their decision.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Tribune Media.

    Interview

    I applied on Tribune's website, it was a few days later when I got an email for a phone interview. That lasted around 5-10 minutes and consisted of talking about my experience, asking them questions, and hearing more details about the job. Later that day, they sent me a writing test. The next week they asked for me to come into the station for an in-person interview. Met with 2 different people, one on one, and toured the building. They called me a few days later to offer me the job.

    Financial Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Tribune Media (Chicago, IL) in April 2016.

    Interview

    I really liked the people over at Tribune Media. The culture seemed amazing, the interviewers were very laid back, highly intelligent as well. The process is a bit unorganized, but that is to be expected given the relative "newness" of the firm's finance department. Cannot stress how chill the environment was. The process is almost entirely behavioral, and they focus in on your business acumen, and what you can bring to the table. Make sure you have concrete examples of what new ideas you can bring forth, or you will not get the job.
