    Editor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Washington, DC
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeksinterviewed at SmartBrief in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    Initially, I applied for a freelance copywriting position and took the timed test. Apparently I did well enough that I was asked whether I'd be interested in applying for a remote editor position. I was and took another timed test, which I did well enough for a phone interview with a supervising editor who oversees multiple "briefs". Then I interviewed, again on the phone, with the next supervisor, and concluded with multiple Skype interviews with other writers and editors in their home office in D.C. I was told I was one of two finalists, and they ultimately went with the other candidate, who lived in the area, but they were wonderful to me every step of the way. They shied from no question. They were effusive and generous. I was convinced they would be good people with whom to work.

    Interview Questions
    • None of the questions were terribly difficult--there were some interesting speculative questions about ways to increase reach and impact that were difficult to feel confident about from the outside of the business--but the Skype interviews were tough because of the technology. There were lags that made it difficult for me and my interviewers to avoid speaking over each other and stepping on each others' questions.   Answer Question
