I have been working at The Washington Post full-time
A very agile culture with great energy and a strong sense of mission. There is a lot of innovation happening in all parts of the company. Much more often than not, management is not only receptive to initiative, they invite it. If you have something to contribute and know how to navigate the place, chances are - your ideas will be implemented. You can do some of your best work here and be proud that it serves a greater cause.
In order to succeed here, you need a certain level of agency and self-efficacy. If you prefer a highly-structured environment with infrequent change, this is not a place for you.
I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at The Washington Post (Washington, DC) in March 2017.
There was an initial phone screen with HR. Following that I had a in person interview with the hiring manager. For the final interview, I met with the HM and the team.
