    Assessment Editor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Indianapolis, IN
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Indianapolis, IN
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at CTB/McGraw-Hill, LLC in April 2013.

    Interview Details

    I only had two interviews, both were in person. One was with the staffing company, the other was with McGraw Hill. For my interview with McGraw Hill, the person I was supposed to speak to forgot my interview time - twice! It was very rude and was a problem for as I hired a baby-sitter both times so I could take the interview. Then there was no apology. I didn't need to meet with anyone in person, which I should have taken as the first clue that this job and place was warped.

    Director of Strategy and Business Development Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  New York, NY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 6 weeks - interviewed at CTB/McGraw-Hill, LLC in August 2011.

    Interview Details

    Erratic. It took 6 weeks for nothing. The hiring executive was extremely responsive and had the scheduler reply to a cold e-mail inbound to the executive to schedule a phone interview which was fast and smooth. Round two happened over the next few days which was also smooth and professional. From there the wheels came off in a big way. I was told to expect a follow up phone interview with the hiring executive over the coming week but got zero follow up. I left polite phone messages for the round two recruiter every 3 - 5 days politely requesting the follow up status. Three weeks later I get a curt e-mail saying they're waiting until after the holiday for next steps. While this isn't a deal killer in and of itself did it really have to take this long as opposed to a polite reply with the same information?

    After the holiday another four polite follow up messages over three weeks until I finally get another rude e-mail saying they're not moving forward with anyone at all. I've got to believe the hiring executive wouldn't be this unprofessional but she should really get a clue about how bad her "HR" recruiting professional is. The scheduler was the only positive part of the process although even she didn't have any follow through either.

    I don't expect HR / recruiters to find me for a job, but at least reply back to messages when an EVP asks you to follow up and especially you've put someone through multiple rounds of phone interviews.
      Don't forget todays senior executive candidate is tomorrows client.

    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a day - interviewed at CTB/McGraw-Hill, LLC in September 2008.

    Interview Details

    Interviewer was on time, very respectful and generally the people that I wanted to work with. There were some quiet difficult questions to answer but interviewer was good at making me feel very comfortable. It ended up being more like a conversation not certainly stuffy. I expected "corporate" attitude but find normal people which was really nice, took away the intimidation of talking to corporate people.
