I worked at Time Inc. full-time (More than 3 years)
They made some poor business decisions, but it was a great company to work for. They really cared about their staffs and had excellent benefits. They also looped all employees in ASAP with full disclosure about upcoming moves the company was making including layoffs and closures (as soon as they were legally able to of course). The attitude was "you guys are all journalist and damn good ones so you'll find out soon enough anyway!"
The restructuring of the sales department (moving away from brand sellers to vertical sellers) ultimately lead to several brands being under-served and lead the company into rapid decline.
I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Time Inc. (Birmingham, AL (US)) in March 2014.
I applied online and was contacted within a few days for an initial phone interview. I spoke with a recruiting manager based in the NY office. It was a pretty standard editorial interview. She asked about my writing experiences and my education. It was only a 10 minute interview, and she said someone would be in touch within a few weeks. No one ever got in touch with me, so I followed up with her a few times. She was really nice about it and kept telling me the deadline got pushed back. About 2 months (!!) later, I got an email for another phone interview with the specific publication. It was a much longer, in depth interview. She asked a lot of situational questions (tell me about a time when...). Basically they ask everyone the same questions and score your answers. Then the choose the candidates who got the highest scores.
