    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Rodale in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    After first contact to invite for interview, an HR representativ called with basic information including position level and salary (not specified in posting) and even had courtesy to suggest I was overqualified and recommend I aim higher. Interview was with direct and indirect supervisors, both very pleasant and frank.

    Interview Questions
    • Mostly the discussion was about the position itself, its duties and limitations, and how they compare with my credentials. As it was mutually agreed I was overqualified and the position scope and salary were not flexible, there were no hard questions.   Answer Question

    Junior Web Designer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Rodale.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and was contacted for an interview two business days later. I presume the interviewer was quick to decide that they were not interested in me as a candidate because they asked two general questions about myself and my education and within the first 10 minutes they moved on to seeing if I had any remaining questions about the position. The following 20 minutes were questions I had about the position. Following the interview I sent them a thank you with three references at their request. A week and a half later without additional correspondence I received a letter declining a job offer.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 days - interviewed at Rodale in April 2012.

    Interview Details

    Easy Interview process, I applied online, I was contacted by PR the next week and was asked a few questions about where I wanted to work in the company. Very easy, on reflection I think the process was so easy because actually working at the company was a nightmare. I would say the interview process is misleading. I REGRET working here.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 days - interviewed at Rodale in July 2010.

    Interview Details

    There was the initial telephone interview with standard questions such as past employment, skills, why you are looking to leave and what is it about this job that interests you. A week or so later was a face to face interview with the hiring manager, the incument I would be replacing and also HR. What stayed with me was how pleasant they all were and what a relaxing and calm environment Rodale had. It would have been a joy to work there.
