    Application

    The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Chicago Tribune in April 2007.

    Interview

    The phone interview was informal. They mostly asked for and checked with the 3-4 references I gave them and it seemed all of them gave me good words. It then followed with an on-site interview which was also very informal. I met with 5-6 people who were supposed to be important in the hiring process and spent the rest of the day chatting and doing lunch with a group of future co-workers in the same department. Most of them were casual chatting. The hiring manager was trying to show me how "employee friendly" the company was and I was very impressed.

    The company remained "employee friendly" even after 2007 big laid off.
