    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Hearst.

    Interview

    Interview was more like a conversation. Not too much pressure, but enough to make sure you answered quickly with applicable answers. There were 2 different interviews with two different managers. They try to get a feel for your personality, not just your skill and education.
