    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. 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.

    Application Details

    I applied online. 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.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6 days - interviewed at Martha Stewart Living.

    Interview Details

    I found this internship opportunity on my college job board and promptly submitted just a resume. I received a quick response to my initial application and the in-person interview was no different. The interview was rather quick, but efficient, and was only with the HR manager. It resulted in an offer.
