    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Meredith Corporation in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied through ed2010.com. Received an email the next day from the fashion assistant to come in for an interview. Interviewed the following week, but never heard back. I thought the interview went well, so I assume they went with someone with more experience (I don't have any fashion experience).

    Assistant to the Editor-in-Chief of MORE Magazine 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 a weekinterviewed at Meredith Corporation in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    Was forwarded the EIC's public Facebook post regarding her search for a new assistant. I emailed her my resume and cover letter, and was contacted by the assistant that was being replaced to set up an interview the following week. I interviewed in the EIC's office with the assistant but never saw the EIC. Assistant was very nice, asked standard questions, and was encouraging. We got along great but she was leaving a month earlier than I was able to start, so I knew in the interview that it wasn't going to work out. I (female) wore a fitted black suit and felt really overdressed compared to the business casual attire of everyone else I saw.

    Interview Questions
    • She told me that the EIC once had an assistant who sent her pregnant, in December, to the wrong restaurant--I think just to watch for my reaction?   Answer Question

    I applied for the position online and didn't receive an email until a few weeks later to ask me to come in for an interview.

    Direct Marketing Associate Interview

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

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Meredith Corporation in December 2012.

    Interview Details

    Applied online through campus recruiting and then had a phone interview. In-person interview when I was in NYC (was applying from out of state). The woman who interviewed was very kind and explained that she needed someone with specialized experience. I asked why she had me come in for the second interview (considering my obvious lack of direct marketing experience) and she said she liked me and was hoping to find something relevant to direct marketing in my background. I am wondering why the job was posted on a college career database if they were not really looking for entry level candidates.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took a dayinterviewed at Meredith Corporation in June 2011.

    Interview Details

    I met with HR and then higher level executives at Fitness Magazine. I also met with an employee a year older than myself, and she explained a lot about the company from my point of view. However, after the interview I found out that they were in a hiring freeze and could only offer me a temp position and that the job I had interviewed for couldn't be filled so I would have to come in and interview for a different role, still temp.

    They are the nicest, most reasonable people. The negotiation was a totally pleasant experience. My advice would be to go in knowing what your bottom line is and what the rates are for that particular industry.
