I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Pace Communications in July 2013.
Interview Details – I met with three individuals - two from HR - and one hiring editor while doing a conference call with another. I was supposed to have met with two more managers, neither of whom were available. The process took no more than an hour, and all involved were professional and friendly. The HR manager gave me a packet of materials explaining their benefits package, which I found extremely helpful.
Interview Question – They asked several questions about certain scenarios I may encounter on the job and how I would deal with them. Mostly, they involved working with deadlines or other people from various departments, as well as time management. Answer Question
I applied through other source and the process took a day - interviewed at Pace Communications in April 2011.
Interview Details – I had two one-on-one interviews. The first was with the managing editor and the second was with the editor in chief. They asked about my past experience, personality, and future plans. They were very friendly and conversational. Afterwards, I completed a spelling and grammar test to prove my editing skills. I also performed a small fact-checking assignment for review.

Interview Details –
My interview was with the Ecommerce division of the company. I had a two part one on one interview, first with the head of HR and then with the head of Marketing. Overall, the questions were pretty basic, strengths, weaknesses, asking me to explain more about the experiences I had listed on my résumé. The whole process took about 45 minutes, including time for me to ask both interviewers my questions. Looking back, I wish I had a little more time with each interviewer and their questions had been somewhat more in depth, giving me the chance to expose more of my skills and abilities.
Overall, perceptions about the office—everyone I came in contact with seemed very nice but extremely busy. Like most companies these days, they were somewhat understaffed at the time of my visit, so current employees are asked to pick up the slack. When I asked about the company culture the Marketing Director described it as very team oriented where people often cross functional lines to get the job done.
Interview Question – I did not really encounter any truly unexpected questions. See my comments on the interview process. Answer Question
