    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Citysearch.

    Interview

    Initial phone screening with internal recruiter which lasted about 45-60 minutes. It was a typical questionnaire of how I would handle certain business situations. I also had 2 face to face interviews with my direct boss. These meetings were less formal. Had extensive phone interview with the VP of Sales.

    Interview Questions

    • None of the questions were difficult or unexpected. They were very expected. I was asked how I would handle certain business scenarios, why I wanted to work at the company and how I thought I could contribute to the company's success.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I was able to negotiate. The negotiation was done with the recruiter.
