Senior Editor Interview

Senior Editor

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Wiley in December 2010.

Interview Details – Initial phone interview, flown to headquarters for a day of interviews with the hiring manager, the hiring manager's boss, peers, and direct reports. Interviews were not particularly difficult. But the decision making process dragged out for several months.

Interview Question – Would you be willing to move to New Jersey for this job.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – Only communicated with HR--contact with hiring manager was forbidden.

Very Easy Interview

Production Assistant Interview

Production Assistant

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Wiley in October 2013.

Interview Details – I actually applied through a networking connection to another position. When they called me in for an interview I had a brief chat on the phone with the HR representative, but it wasn't really a formal interview. When I went in, I had a great initial interview with HR, but in meeting with the hiring manager it as pretty clear it really wasn't the right position for me. But shortly after they notified me that I wasn't hired for that position, they said there was another one open that better fit my qualifications and goals, so I came in for another interview, and a few days later received a job offer. The interviews were fairly low-key. They basically just went through my resume and asked about my experiences, then asked a couple of basic questions. It kind of seemed like they had an idea beforehand that they wanted to hire me or didn't. There was also a copyediting test and another test involving writing a business letter.

Interview Question – The only question I really remember was, "What would your ideal position look like?" Not really a hard one...   Answer Question

Sales Manager Interview

Sales Manager
Jersey City, NJ

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Wiley in November 2013.

Interview Details – There was an application filled in and then 1 month or more later a phone call and then a test of "your personality" -- a predictive index test which they say is "just to find out more about you." Then nothing. Silence. And if you follow up by email...still silence...and if you check in 2 weeks later by phone....still silence and no email or anything else in the way of feedback. Cracks me up. You want someone to give your clients good customer service....and yet, you deliver far short in that area. You and your resume go into a black hole if you are not selected for follow up and it appears you will hear nothing at all either way. So my suggestion: move on even when commencing the interview process.

Interview Question – There were not any difficult questions. Seemed very cookie cutter which actually alarmed me a bit. I figured someone would ask a few "out of the box" thinking questions, but they did not.....how do you plan your day....how do you find new clients...what could you do for us that someone else cannot/did not....   Answer Question
