    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at CNET Networks (San Francisco, CA) in July 2017.

    Interview

    I had a phone interview in the middle of the week and was in the office by the end of that same week for in an-person interview, so they were pretty prompt. I got interviewed by two different people, both very nice, and I even got a tour of the building. It didn't bother me that they really made me feel like I was going to get the job with promising statements but then offered it to someone else. What bothered me was that they didn't email or call me at all with the news. I had to pry and email and call both of the men that interviewed me in order to get a response.
