    Editorial Interview

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

    I applied online – interviewed at Oxford University Press.

    Interview Details

    It took a little over a month to hear back from the employer and they emailed me asking if I was still interested in the position. We set up a time to meet in person and I travelled over an hour to get to the office to find out that the job described online was not what they were offering. Online it said a full time paid internship and they explained that it was very part time and minimum wage!

    Interview Questions
    • They did not ask a lot of questions, they asked for me to talk about myself, so it's better if you do most of the talking.   Answer Question

    Was brought it for an interview after applying online - met with HR for a few minutes then met with Dir and VP of publicity.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Oxford University Press in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    HR in US did a telephone screening interview with me first. This consisted of very basic questions, and seemed to mainly be about verifying what was on the application form for me. I was invited a few days later for an interview with the manager for the role. This was relatively informal - a conversation in the managers office. The manager asked a series of questions, spoke about the role and what it involved in depth, and seemed interested to know my reaction to hearing about the role, whether it interested me and if I really wanted to do it.
