    Easy if you start off knowing basics of finance and economics, or want to learn. Editors are willing to teach you. Just ask.


    9-5 at the desk. If you dislike that, don't work here. Their website makes it hard to make cool stuff for the web.

    Advice to Management

    Management treats employees well. As someone who worked with the website and wanted to add cool stuff to it, it was disappointing how difficult it was.

    Average Interview


    I applied online. I interviewed at Bankrate.


    I submitted for the position online. I was contacted by HR and set up an interview. I met with HR and then a couple of managers from the department. The interview was fairly simple and straight forward. It lasted maybe an hour or so. I was offered the position very quickly and I accepted.

    Interview Questions

    • I was asked if I could spell the word "mortgage" because that's about the only skill you need for this job.   Answer Question


    No negotiation. They told me the range of salary for the department and they offered me the max.
