    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at CNN.

    Interview

    After recommendation and application, interviewed with several stakeholders in person, by phone and e-mail. Lots of input and long protracted back and forth process that I later learned was typical and indicative of company culture. It has been some time since those interviews, so this may have changed under new leadership.

    Interview Questions

    • Typical interview questions about past and how to handle future scenarios, plus knowledge of the industry.   Answer Question
