I have been working at New York Times full-time (More than a year)
Incredible work for anyone who believes in the mission of NYT and the value of credible, thoughtful journalism. Effective cross-functional collaboration.
Somewhat bureaucratic, somewhat late to the party on many digital media trends (this has since changed to my understanding)
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at New York Times (New York, NY).
This was one of the worst interview experiences of my career. The overall process by HR/recruitment was well organized and appreciated. The first 3 people to interview me were polite and professional and as expected. The last woman to interview me was late to the meeting room, followed by abrasive behavior thereafter that would have made anyone feel uncomfortable. Interviews are meant to be tough to some degree, but this seemed like a power trip. The most inappropriate question asked was "Do you have children?" and when i responded "No" it was meant with the unthinkable response "Good, so you can travel". I was beyond shocked not to mention disappointed. I was in the mindset that I was interviewing at one of the most forward thinking and intelligent establishments in the country and never expected such an inapprotiate experience.
