    Entretien de Editorial Assistant

    Entretien

    I interviewed for a position under two editors who work in separate imprints but share an assistant. I spoke with the first editor alone, where she asked me questions and gave me a manuscript sample to read. Then I had a chance to speak to the second editor who also gave me two samples to read and review. The first editor worked mostly with literary and upmarket fiction while the second editor was exclusively into non-fiction. They really needed an assistant who could manage this very broad workload. After speaking with both editors I also had a chance to talk for a while with the current assistant and ask her questions about the job, her likes, challenges and advice.

    It was a great interview and it was down to me and someone else but someone else got it. The copy test was to write copy for a new product that was to come out. I spent a lot of time on it and thought that I did really well.

    J'ai postulé en ligne. J'ai passé un entretien à Penguin Random House.

    Entretien

    Had a phone interview, then 2 consecutive in-person interviews, one with HR and the other in the department I was applying for. My would-be supervisors basically walked me through the job on the spot, only to never hear official word and found out I was not selected. Very long process and unprofessional

    Entretien de Marketing Assistant

    Expérience positive
    Entretien dificile

    Candidature

    J'ai postulé via une recommandation d'un employé. Le processus a pris 4 semaines. J'ai passé un entretien à Penguin Random House (New York, NY (États-Unis)) en novembre 2019.

    Entretien

    My interview experience was really positive. If there is anything I can recommend to people interviewing at Penguin, it's that you should prepare a lot of behavioral questions such as "tell me about a time when.." Additionally, bring several copies of your resume to an in-person interview. I will also say that I applied for 8 jobs at Penguin before getting an interview, and the only reason I actually got one is that I had a friend who worked directly with that imprint,

    First, I was emailed by the recruiter, which went really well. On the phone with me, she scheduled the in-person interview, which was a few days later. I was told the in-person interview would take about an hour, but I was there for 2 hours. When I asked for an update about three weeks later, I was told I was still being considered. However, I received a job offer from another publisher and reached out to Penguin to see if they wanted to counter. The recruiter was super nice and got back to me promptly. They decided not to offer and I ended up taking the offer from the other company.

    Entretien

    A relatively short, and to-the-point phone interview with a recruiter from the company. Interview was less than 15 minutes and I was asked more about my interest in publishing rather than skills that qualified me for the position.

    Entretien

    After a phone screen in which I mentioned my salary requirements and was told the position was in that range, the in-person interview informed me the salary for the position was actually well below my requirements, and the position considerably below my experience level. All in all, a colossal waste of time that could have been avoided had the phone screen been accurate about the job's experience level and salary. Not sure how this sort of mistake can happen at a company as large as Penguin Random House.

    Brief phone screening with an HR assistant, then went in for an in person interview. I met with said HR person where she read me generic questions off a sheet and wrote down my answers. Then I met with the hiring manager and had a more conversational interview.

    Entretien

    Initial phone screen followed by an in person interview in the Manhattan office. It was a pretty laid back interview. The building is massive with multiple imprints and the lobby was very cool - filled with books and bookshelves. Everyone I interacted with during the process was friendly and polite and they sent me an email to let me know I did not get the position just over a week after the in person interview.

    Entretien

    I applied online, had a phone interview, and 2 rounds of in person interviews. The phone interview was with the HR recruiter. My first in person interview was with the hiring manager. And, then my third interview was with the VP, director, and other team members. I think I applied in mid-late July and heard back about their final decision in late September. The process was pretty standard. I do think their follow up after the second interview could've been a little better, especially since I gave them a considerable amount of my time.
