    Learning Technology Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at McGraw Hill in August 2020.

    Interview

    My interview process was separated into three parts - a phone screen with the hiring manager, a Zoom call with the training and development director, then a virtual project I had to conduct on my own in order to understand the role better. Unfortunately, I was not selected to move on because they were looking for candidates with more experience in B2B sales.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at McGraw Hill.

    Interview

    I went through a series of interviews, first with the recruiter and then with the hiring manager. The first was a phone call second was a video interview. I connected with the hiring manager immediately and she asked me about myself and we had a good conversation. I did appreciate that she asked what I was looking for in the role to see not only if I was a good match for them but if they were a good match for me.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at McGraw Hill (New York, NY (US)) in June 2020.

    Interview

    You have a 30 minute initial phone call. The recruiter did not ask me any questions at all during this phone call which I found very strange. We just spent 30 minutes going over what questions I had about the position. Im not sure how this company makes the decision to move forward or not with a candidate without asking about their experiences.

    Product Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at McGraw Hill in April 2020.

    Interview

    I had an interview with a person from Talent Acquisition and then had an interview with the main supervisor and then two other Product Managers at the company. I enjoyed the interview process for the Product Management position. Didn't really enjoy it for another position I applied for.

    Interview Questions

    • 1. Describe a product that comes to mind; what do you like or dislike about it? What changes would you make?
      2. Describe your past experience and how it relates to this role?
      3. What is ruthless prioritization?
      4. What do you know about the product?
      5. How do you work with people who may be challenging?
      6. How would you handle any disputes with members of your team?

      There were a lot more questions, but I enjoyed the interview process. I felt like the interviewers tried to get to know me with some basic questions, but then asked questions that were intuitive to see how I would handle certain situations or challenge my thought process to better understand how I think.   Answer Question

    Editorial Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Burr Ridge, IL (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at McGraw Hill (Burr Ridge, IL (US)).

    Interview

    I was referred by someone who already worked there - she forwarded my resume. I received a call from HR to set up a phone interview. From there, I had a phone interview/screening with the HR manager, who then set up a phone interview with the hiring manager. After I passed that, I was asked to come in for an in person interview. I was there for four hours and interviewed separately with about five different people on the team. About two days later, they offered me the job and I took it. That was 17 years ago!

    • Honestly, it was so long ago, I don't remember, but I know they asked me why I wanted to work for McGraw-Hill.   1 Answer

    Senior Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Seattle, WA (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at McGraw Hill (Seattle, WA (US)) in September 2019.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter. Afterwards I had a phone interview. After the pone interview I was invited onsite. The onsite interview went well until it didn't. I really though I was a perfect fit for this position. I mean who has 10 years experience with php and 3 years angular. The exact tech stack they were committed to. It all came down to the site reliability engineer asking me several questions about micro services. I couldn't answer. Who in their right mind is using php to build micro service architecture. Anyway. That is when it all went south. My php experience was using drupal, magento, code igniter, and symfony. That didn't cut it. Ever since this interview I have been educating myself on micro services. In the process of educating myself though .net core I realized the site reality engineer who was interviewing me didn't even know what he was talking about. Dude was deploying the same php code on the same hosted server which isn't a micro service at all. When I met the site reliability engineer I had an immediate feeling that he did not like me. From the first second we met hands I had an intuition that the interview was not going to go well.

    Interview Questions

    • A bunch of micro service questions. Several questions about how to monitor health, design patterns, and logging. Ironically not many Angular questions. I question whether anyone actually knew angular.   Answer Question

    Business Analyst Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at McGraw Hill.

    Interview

    The recruiter gave me a call at the scheduled time, and right away, it seemed like she was just interested in asking questions. She didn't seem to want to give me the opportunity to drive the conversation, and my ability to ask questions about the company and the role were limited. That was still tolerable. However, about 15 minutes into the call, she started talking about her broken foot, and that whole experience. I thought it was definitely irrelevant, but decided to just go with it. Maybe she was testing my conversational skills. The conversation then moved to her granddaughter's gymnastics performances, and her journey through gymnastics.

    By that time, it had been 45 minutes, and the majority of the time was spent talking about the recruiter's life. I've actually never had this type of experience in an interview, and it definitely didn't leave a great impression of the company.

    Interview Questions

    • It sounded like she had a checklist of questions to ask, and was only interested in getting through that list, and nothing further.
