    Communications Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at McGraw Hill Financial in July 2010.

    Interview Details

    It was fairly straightforward. I found the exchanges with the recruiter to be very pleasant and informative. The 1:1 with the hiring manager was a great conversation. However, the company HR manager was fairly reserved and not necessarily a great ambassador for the company. The interview felt less like an interrogation based on qualifications than maybe what someone might feel interviewing for a private club. I would say the culture is extremely conservative.

    Senior Director Interview

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

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at McGraw Hill Financial in October 2009.

    Interview Details

    The hiring manager inflated the appeal of the opportunity. Once I was on board, the nature of the work was more junior than promised, and there was less staff available than discussed. I later learned that others had the same experience when they were recruited.

    The background check took weeks and was excessive -- you just have to wait it out.

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    As with most companies, do your research, push for as much compensation as you can because once they have you, raises are tiny. Also, I had 3 weeks vacation with my then-current employer and they matched it. Get it in writing.
