    I have been working at Cox Media Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I have been with KIRO7 and Cox Media Group for a little over a year as an Account Executive. I love the fast pace and every day is different. The work is challenging but you are rewarded generously. The people I work with are truly the best and everyone in the building is friendly and helpful. Also, it is a lot of fun to work in a news organization. In the past year, KIRO7 has been top in the ratings for the local news, so we must be doing something right! The parent company, Cox Media Group, provides extensive training and support for TV and Digital sales. We have a full range of media solutions, not just TV, so we are very competitive in the media landscape.

    Cons

    Meetings. But who doesn't complain about meetings!

    Advice to Management

    Manage to each individual salesperson's strengths.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Cox Media Group (Atlanta, GA) in August 2016.

    Interview

    I originally applied online their talent portal. After a few days, I received an email and then follow up call from their recruiter. She did a detailed phone screen and sent it the hiring manager. The recruiter set up a phone interview which involved asking a lot of technical questions. Did a coding exercise online using a collaborative coding environment. I was then asked to come to a face-to-face interview. Face to face interview as a panel that lasted a few hours, and included an interview with the Architect, Other Software Engineers, and some members of the management team. Did a few whtieboarding questions, and had a culture screening to check that out.
