    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

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

    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.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Penske Media (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.

    Interview

    Everyone I met during the interview process were friendly and professional, including the hiring managers and receptionist. You can either park your car or valet it. Security will swipe you to the PMC reception so arrive early for this process. In general, the work environment is pretty casual.

    Average Interview

    Application

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

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Penske Media (New York, NY (US)) in April 2016.

    Interview

    From beginning to end it was an incredibly positive experience with the recruiter Andy Limpus. I met with the VP Managing Director of Variety, the COO of PMC brands and the managing editor of Variety Latino, all lovely people. The interview process consisted of a phone screening, a one on one interview and two phone calls. Everyone was extremely professional and went out of their way to keep me informed. Although I did not accept the position at the moment, I could definitely see myself working there in the future alongside these great individuals!

    Google Hangouts interview with tech staff, followed up with some email discussion and a written quiz. Had to code up a WordPress plugin with some basic requirements, "bonus points" for unit tests, coding standards, etc. Easy enough if you know what you're doing.

    There was some lag time between the interview and response.
