    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Progressive Business Publications (Malvern, PA) in September 2009.

    Interview

    It was very unprofessional in nature. I was asked my age right out of the gate which really took me by surprise to be quite honest. i was also asked whether or not i was married and had children to "check if i was eligable for their benefit plan"? the conference room in which i was interviewed had various board games laying around and was just a mess. The people were not very friendly at all and seemed as if they really didnt want to be there.

    Negotiation

    i was unable to negotiate my pay. i was told what my pay would be.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Progressive Business Publications (Altoona, PA) in June 2012.

    Interview

    Saw an ad in the paper asking for outgoing people who were able to communicate well with others. Part of the ad that was appealing to myself was that I could make my own schedule, with no nights or weekends, and I could earn $12/hr within the first month. I called and was immediately granted an interview for the next day and was hired upon completing the interview and started the next week.

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Progressive Business Publications.

    Interview

    First, you talk with a recruiter about basic information. Then he/she will take u to a meeting room to do a test, including verb, logic and math problems. After this you are going to meet with the people from accounting department. They will ask u some accounting related questions but it's pretty easy.
