    I worked at Sightline Media Group full-time

    Pros

    The brands are one of a kind. Nice employees. Overall OK place to work if you are in media and journalism.

    Cons

    ...it is media. Media is an ever-changing landscape and this place still relies on print revenue. Rip the band-aid off and go digital-only.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Sightline Media Group (Cincinnati, OH) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Passed initial phone interview and a time and date was set for an in person interview, without my input as to the time and date. When I expressed concern that I may not be able to make the date and time that was set without any input from me, I was told my resume had been withdrawn from the applicant pool. Thank goodness - because I would never want to work for a company that sets meetings prior to consulting the other party about the time and date.
