    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Wiley (Hoboken, NJ (US)) in August 2011.

    Interview

    Phone call. Then in-person. I took several tests: grammar, proofreading, and e-mail writing. (The last was a case study wherein I was given a situation and I had to craft an e-mail to someone about it.) Then,I chatted with the hiring manager, who corrected my tests in front of me and commented on my work. And finally, I talked with the HR professional, who told me a little bit more about the company at large. The whole process between first e-mail asking to schedule a phone screen to the actual offer letter took less than 2 weeks.

    Interview Questions

    • Mr. Joe Schmoe is a senior editor for one of our publications. His submission is 3 weeks late. Craft an e-mail asking for the submission, keeping in mind that he is very high ranking in the XYZ community.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Wiley (Hoboken, NJ (US)) in August 2014.

    Interview

    Met with 4 people - 2 editors I'd be working for, the Senior Assistant, and the product designer. One editor worked off-site so we had a phone interview alone in a conference room. Everyone was very helpful and spoke to me as if I already had the job. They asked questions about my personal life, such as school, what I did for fun, etc.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Wiley (Hoboken, NJ (US)) in January 2013.

    Interview

    Networked to find someone within the company to recommend me. The HR department is understaffed and quite a few people have recently been laid off so they prefer referrals and internal candidates. I finally met with my future manager two weeks after the screening call, but from there, it was a very quick process. About two days after meeting my manager, I received an offer. They liked that I asked a lot of insightful questions and knew a lot about Wiley's legacy.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    No negotiation for amount. I brought it up but was told there was no wiggle room. They did meet my last salary even though it was higher than what most people make as editorial assistants.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Wiley (Hoboken, NJ (US)) in January 2012.

    Interview

    I applied before the holidays and started working at the very end of January. I had a phone interview, then an in-person interview with my manager. I was called back for a second interview with the other person I'd be supporting, and HR invited me to interview for two other positions they thought I'd be a good fit for. I was made an offer the day after that 2nd visit to the office.

    Negotiation

    I didn't negotiate, which was a mistake. It was my first job out of college, so I didn't really know any better.
