    Interview

    Agency pre-liminary interview w/ discussion of overall experieince,intrests, goals then I was referred to Thomas Publishing for an interview as a productions assisitant. Met with the HR department at the NY HQ the recruiter was very nice but I was her last interview before she quit. She asked many questions told me about the job and then warned me about my potential manager that his personality was a little over the top and not to let that throw me off or offend and then she took me back to tour the dept. and interview with the manager. That interview lasted 3 mins. and was over and I left. Didn't get the impression that the interview went well w/the manager but that afternoon I was made an offer and the accepted and started the following Monday.

    Interview Questions

    • Why Thomas knowing its not the traditional publishing you were looking for? Position used to be editor and a lot of aspiring editors go in for the job. Really no hard balls. She repeats how boring the work is, which seems hard to overcome if you really want excitement. Ask if you've ever done research. Anything counts really here   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    No negotiation. Here's what you get paid, take it or leave it. Don't really tell you unless you ask.
