    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at AOL.

    Interview

    I was initially contacted by a recruiter within AOL. I went through 2 phone screens; one with the recruiter and one with the hiring manager. I was then brought in to meet with a group of 6 people (2 at a time) who asked questions about my background, previous experience and gave me scenarios to answer. I was brought back a third time to meet with the SVP, the interview lasted about 20 minutes. From there I met again with the hiring manager and talked about next steps.

    Interview Questions

    • "How much do you know about agency terms?" This was in regards to the terms and conditions for a media contract for a specific agency partner.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    They're pretty strict in regards to what they offer for a base salary, but there is a little room to negotiate.
