I applied through an employee referral and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Martha Stewart Living.

Interview Details – Resume sent to jr. HR personnel via another upper-level employee. HR employee emailed me to set up a phone interview, which lasted about 15 minutes. The questions were very basic-- tell me about yourself and your experience, what is your perception of the brand and how do you fit in with it, what job do you see yourself in next. They seemed most interested about how I would fit in with the Martha Stewart and what relevant job experience I had.

Interview Question – Most difficult: How do you fit in with the Martha Stewart Brand?   View Answer

Back When Human Resources Was Good Interview

Back When Human Resources Was Good
New York, NY

I applied online and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Martha Stewart Living in February 2010.

Interview Details – I had a wonderful interview and onboarding experience. I was with the company at a time when they had a full, robust HR staff that cared about placing the right people in the right positions and who wanted to train and develop its workforce. By the time I left teh company, it was reduced to a handful of generalists who simply read resumes and set up interviews.

Interview Question – Be prepared to know and live the brand. This is a must.   Answer Question

Interview Details – My then boss contacted my professor (who was also her professor years ago) and told him they were looking for an editorial assistant for a certain section of the magazine. He sent out a general email to select few of students and I was the first one to reply. He told my boss about me, I sent her my resume, and she hired me through email on the spot. I came in a few days later, filled out some paper work, and started working the same day.

Interview Details – I found this internship opportunity on my college job board and promptly submitted just a resume.

It resulted in an offer.

Interview Question – There were no extremely unexpected or difficult questions. The bulk of questions pertained to what I did at my past internships and how I could apply those skill to this company.   Answer Question
