    Interview

    The experience was consistent from start to finish, with everyone extremely responsive, genuine, and honest about expectations for the role. They clearly prioritize finding a fit that’s beneficial for both parties, and everyone brings a high level of professionalism and respect to the process.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Penske Media Corporation.

    Interview

    The process was actually really great. There was a lot of communication, I was kept in the loop, and things moved at a great pace. When I was told a next step by a certain date, it actually happened. Really enjoyed this experience and found it much more professional than a lot of other interviews I have had.

    Client Services Manager Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Penske Media Corporation (New York, NY (US)) in March 2019.

    Interview

    I found the CSM job at SHE Media through a mutual friend and was set up to interview from there. It was a very positive experience, and everyone I met with throughout the process was great. I could tell that they were really committed to finding someone who not only could do the work, but who would be a good fit for the team. I came in twice for in-person interviews with 5 team members altogether. I also spoke with a recruiter on PMC's end, who was incredibly friendly & seemed genuinely invested in my next career move. Although I didn't accept this offer, I do think it'd be a pleasure to work with this team.

    Unfortunately, the position was put on HOLD. The interview process took a few months, but Andy Limpus made sure to be informative and transparent each step of the way.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Penske Media Corporation (New York, NY (US)) in January 2018.

    Interview

    Months in between application, HR phone call and in-person interviews.
    Company seems disastrous. No top-down strategy, strained internal relationships and adding vendors to solve problems they should be able to solve. People also seemed very judgmental. Went in for 2nd interview to meet with various members of the team and then never heard back and I'm glad.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Penske Media Corporation (New York, NY (US)) in October 2018.

    Interview

    I had 4 interviews with various members of the team. Honestly was the best set of interviews I've ever had. Nice interviewers who were very straightforward, and showed commitment to finding the right person. Some of the questions were unexpected, but in a good way. The kind of questions I would want all employers in the industry searching for creative candidates to ask. Overall, everyone was very professional and courteous.

    E-Commerce Editor Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Penske Media Corporation (New York, NY (US)) in June 2018.

    Interview

    Had three total interviews. First was phone screen by HR, then phone interview with Digital Director, then in-person with Digital Director and Managing Editor. They had me do a writing/editorial test before having me do a phone interview with the Executive Editor. After circling back a week later with EE and DD, I received no response on my candidacy and have still yet to. What was a two month process yielded no response. Outrageous.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Penske Media Corporation.

    Interview

    The interview process was incredibly dragged on. Weeks would go by without hearing from anyone despite following up to check on the status. Ultimately, their team just does not follow up or communicate with each other as I found myself dealing with a few different team members back and forth. The recruiter even said "thanks for letting me know how things are going, I'm not really in the loop".

    • All standard questions through the first few rounds then there was a one hour JS proficiency test that needed to be completed. There was plenty of documentation and direction provided for this test, but still a good challenge.   Answer Question

    Interview

    I applied in late June and recently heard back. The recruiter was beyond helpful. I could immediately tell he cared about my career growth and wasn't just trying to fill a position because he had to. He even suggested other positions that he thought would also be a great fit.
