    Negative Outlook

    I worked at SFG Media Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The salary and perks are ok, the location is also pretty good, and most of the curators/writers are nice people.

    Cons

    Poor management and no concern for employees.
    I was hired with a 2 week training period for a writer position only to find out that it was actually a try out. The people who hired me knew that I was quitting my job to work there but didn't warn me that they might not take me after the 2 weeks training period (they also asked me to work over the week-end with no notice).
    We were 3 trainees and none of us was hired at the end of the "training". No explanation was given whatsoever just a very rude email saying that they were not issuing a job offer at the moment.
    More than 2 months later, they sent me an email offering to "explore a new role" with SF Globe, which was actually the exact same position I had been trained for 3 months before.

    Useless to say I was very happy to decline their offer since I had found a better job in the meantime.

    I don't recommend working for this company as it is managed by a bunch of kids who have no social existence and no concern for people. It is a data driven company which treats humans like more data. It took me a month and a half to find another job after this, and many people cannot afford to be jobless for so long, especially in San Francisco. This experience could have ruined my life if I hadn't had a safety net.

    Advice to Management

    Be more considerate of employees.

    Videographer/Editor Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at SFG Media Group (San Francisco, CA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Video audition.
    Shoot the video. Edit the video. Show video to the founders. They wanted a cooking video similar to what Buzzfeed produces in their Tasty series.
    They had some basic video equipment, but I brought my own. They had the ingredients and some display stuff in a conference room. I spent a bit over an hour shooting the video, then about 45 minutes editing it.
    I actually had fun doing this. I did reveal during the interview process that I probably would be bored after six months of doing cooking videos exclusively, and was looking for more growth potential. Looks like a decent place to work and they founders seemed nice.

    Interview Questions

    • I don't really remember any questions about me, but they asked about the process of the video audition.   1 Answer
