    Solutions Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    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".

    Interview Questions

    • 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

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Penske Media Corporation (Los Angeles, CA (US)).

    Interview

    It was a two tier interview process. First, on the phone and if that worked well, you get set up with one of the editors. The editor I met with was very pleasant, albeit, typical editor- a billion things on his mind. It went well, and then you are asked to produce a quick writing sample. I followed up once, received a decent response but no update on whether or not I am still a candidate. So I would say it's a long process.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Penske Media Corporation (Los Angeles, CA (US)) in November 2017.

    Interview

    Not too bad. I received a phone call from HR, and we chatted about my experience and what would make me a good fit for the role. After that I moved on to an in person interview, which was similar to the call with HR, but included a writing test.

    Interview

    Incredible positive. The met with the director and VP of Human Resources, and they went out of their way to make me feel comfortable and informed. They were supremely professional and kept me updated on every step of the process—and even provided me with their personal phone numbers in case I had any questions during non-business hours. I can't speak highly enough of this team.

    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.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Penske Media Corporation (Los Angeles, CA (US)) in March 2016.

    Interview

    It wen't very well. It was a very simple process and every time I reached out they got back to me right away. The team was friendly and very transparent about what they wanted and what they saw as my potential strengths and weaknesses. It was the first time I decided to be very upfront on what I was bringing and not bringing to the table. that level of transparency seemed to be the charm. I honestly can say it was the smoothest interview process I've ever been through. Not many BS HR questions. Just straight to the point.
