Copy Editor Interview

Copy Editor

I applied online and interviewed at Hindawi Publishing.

Interview Details – I applied to the position online. They contacted me about two weeks later for an English test. They let you in a nice, clean room where you sit to take the exam with other people taking it too. Once you sit, they will give you papers to fill with your basic information, basically the same info in your CV. Then, you proceed with the first test which is easy if your English is at least good. The second exam is only for copy editors. It is easy if you know what you are doing or you have done it before. The only thing is that if your test is scheduled before 12:00 pm, you might want to speed up a little bit since the company's lunch break starts at 12 and they will have to take the exam paper of you and let you wait in the lobby until they are back at 1:00 pm. If you finish before this time, you might have the chance to have your first interview. The 1st interview is with the managers and they were nice.

Document Controller Interview

Document Controller

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Hindawi Publishing.

Interview Details – I first applied online and then they called to schedule the English test ,I took the test and it was okay/average and then they called me again for the 1st interview ,i was interviewed by two people and they were nice and most of the questions were personal to get to know me better ,then they called again to schedule my second and final interview ,I went and it was horrible ,I was interviewed by a manager who didn't even introduce himself at first and kept asking a lot of unrelated questions and told me literally that the position doesn't require English or technical skills it's all about your personality ,he didn't seem nice or helpful and I had the feeling that I'm not getting the job eventually.
