I worked at Bleacher Report full-time
Excellent office with lots of snacks. Great environment.
Sometimes too chill in the office.
I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Bleacher Report (New York, NY) in August 2014.
I applied for the position on the company website. Soon after I was contacted by an employee surprisingly not from B/R, but from SiriusXM, who wanted to schedule a phone interview. It turns out the position is some sort of joint project between the two companies. Most of the interview consisted of the SiriusXM employee asking me to describe my work history and my familiarity with various sports (the position required knowledge of multiple sports). When I asked about the salary, he said the company had not yet decided on what it would be, which I found strange. I didn't get the position, and I didn't hear from the person who interviewed me until I e-mailed him to follow up. The rejection letter said they had decided "to go in a different direction" with the position. When I asked what he meant by that, he said that they chose someone with more experience. Weeks later I saw that the same position was still being rotated on job boards. Many months later, it's still there. They just changed the name to Production Assistant, but the job description is exactly the same. I don't know if they simply didn't hire anyone, or if it's an entry level position and people move up quickly, in which case it's odd they said they found someone "more experienced".
