    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at BuzzFeed (New York, NY) in May 2020.

    Interview

    Recruiter asks you to go over a portfolio piece in detail. Next round is an hour long behavioral interview. No interaction between interviewer and interviewee.. you just get about 50 questions shot at you, and the interviewer takes notes silently, only response being the next question. Personally, I'm used to doing a portfolio review before the behavioral interview. Clearly Buzzfeed is way more concerned about "culture fit" than work ethic.
