    Easy Interview


    I applied online. I interviewed at GateHouse Media (Columbus, OH) in April 2018.


    Two interviews were performed. The first was with just the manager, and second I was able to meet the entire team. The interviews were laid back and welcoming. I liked that they showed me around and was very thorough and transparent.
