    I worked at Meltwater News US Support full-time

    Pros

    You can make very good money for a recent college graduate if you put your work in and dedicate yourself to learning from your managers.

    Cons

    The job description was misleading - this is absolutely a phone sales job.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Meltwater News US Support (Boston, MA) in March 2012.

    Interview

    After a campus-specific job listing was posted, there were two separate phone screens. Neither appeared to be much of an "interview," per se; they both just served to push information about the company rather than assess skills/aptitude/work history.

    Here things take a turn for the worse. It was their expectation that I come to their Boston office only four days after the second phone screen for an in-person interview. This is a little quick, but hardly a bad thing, right? Wrong. Not only did they expect me to pay all my expenses out of pocket, covering a flight and hotel for the *chance* to interview, it was for a GROUP interview (i.e. they planned to herd 20+ unwitting dupes into one room and somehow pick out viable new hires). Outrageous and laughable at the same time. Whoever came up with this asinine HR policy is a clown. Turned them down on the spot.
