    I worked at PR Newswire full-time

    Pros

    For a very large global company, they are very collaborative. There are some incredible and smart people there who truly know the industry and want to do what's best for their clients.

    Cons

    New commission plans are very delayed every year, sometimes not released until April or May. This makes it challenging to understand what your goals are and what you need to try to accomplish as you hit the ground running at the beginning of each year.

    Advice to Management

    Understand your employees value and worth. Make sure you keep a focus on that so that your good employees don't just become a number after the large merger.

    Customer Content Specialist Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at PR Newswire (Albuquerque, NM) in May 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process started by phone, when a outside recruiter called me the day after I applied for the position. She asked basic questions about my work history, and my general knowledge about the company. Then I was asked to come in for a face to face interview with 3 interviewers. They all asked me their own behavioral based questions. Then I passed that interview and was called back the day day to come in for second interview with a more higher up manager. This interview was more relaxed, and he asked me more about my work history as opposed to how i would respond towards behavioral type questions. I got a call that same day with a job off and I started working 2 weeks later. Over all the process was quick and efficient.
