    Ad Operations Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Los Angeles, CA (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Penske Media Corporation (Los Angeles, CA (US)) in October 2017.

    Interview

    The entire process from when I sent my application to when I received an offer took only 11 days, partly because PMC gets busy from Nov-Feb due to award season. I was referred by a friend who works in the same department, his team has an opening. I interviewed with the Director of Operations and a Campaign Manager the first Monday of October, each person interviewed me for an hour -- they were very kind and very easy-going, there were not many "standard questions", they mostly looked over my resume and pointed out things they wanted to know more about or wanted me to be more specific. Overall the interview was very catered to my existing experience. Because it is an entry level job, they didn't expect me to have any directly relevant experience, it seems to me that they were more interested in people who are adaptable, intelligent, and can pick up things easily. The Campaign Manager even took me to tour the building, their cafeteria, and their department office. The next day I had a phone interview with the Sr. Campaign Manager, who works remotely -- it lasted about 30 minutes with him asking me more "standard questions". The director called me on the phone the next Monday and offered me the job.

    E-Commerce Editor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY (US)
    No Offer
    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.

    Event Logistics Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Penske Media Corporation in March 2017.

    Interview

    Received an email from HR to do an initial phone screen, they followed up 2 weeks later with more information, and then went GHOST. Interviewer was a bit older with old interview skills, didn't know hardly anything about the job they were recruiting for and then never once replied to an email or even mentioned that the role was no longer open.

    Probably a sign that they are very disorganized. RUN.

    Footwear News Copy & Production Editor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Penske Media Corporation (New York, NY (US)) in December 2015.

    Interview

    HR was very enthusiastic about arranging a phone screen ASAP—I had mine the day before Christmas Eve, and the HR rep mentioned having more interviews planned the following day. I came in the following week (a few days after Christmas) to meet with the Editor & discuss the role. Several of the duties in the listing & mentioned by HR did not align with the Editor's description of the duties involved. I was told I'd receive an answer within the next "week or two," but I never heard back. Followup emails with the Editor and HR rep were ignored.

    Andy Limpus, the Director of Talent Acquisition, is a fantastic company representative. Every exchange with Andy was informative, honest and very encouraging. Due to Andy's positive attitude and affable nature, it was without doubt the best HR experience I've ever had. Most importantly, he gave me a very good feeling about working for PMC. Andy is unbelievably dedicated to his job and was utterly professional throughout the interview and hiring process. Thank you, Andy!

    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.

    Positive Experience
    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.
