    Interview

    Pretty standard interview process. Initially contacted by company recruiter for some initial profile info and then set up for face-to-face interview. There was no telephone interview. But that was probably because I was local. Interview was set up as individual face-to-face with two Directors, Product Management. About 1-hour for each interview.

    Interview Questions

    • Very good product management questions. How do you a survey a product; pricing decisions, market analysis.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Wolters Kluwer.

    Interview

    Got an email asking for a phone interview within days of applying through a job board. The recruiter had to reschedule our call the morning of our call at 6:24am after confirming our call yesterday. One of her first questions to me was "What year did you graduate from high school?" which is highly unprofessional and not an appropriate question to ask unless the job requirement had minimum age to work but clearly my resume shows I am a college graduate. The purpose of this age related question was unnecessary, regardless of the fact the office is looking for a "mature" individual according to the recruiter. Then when she noticed I was clearly upset by the question she said if I thought I was old than she was "ancient". Other than that, she could not answer any of my questions like the expectations for the role, how performance is measured, and how customer satisfaction is measured. They claim they believe in work/life balance but the role is outside of normal business hours so if you have a child in preschool and need to pick them up within pick up cut-off times of most facilities you won't make it unless you are fortunate enough to hire a nanny or have family in town; they were hiring for an 10-6pm and 11-7pm opportunity.

    Customer Success Manager Interview

    Interview

    I interviewed with UpToDate, a division of Walters Kluwer, company located Waltham, MA. They invited me to an on site interview and after the interview, the HR person never followed up with me. I sent a follow up email to the recruiter and never heard back. This speaks very poorly about the company's culture. I understand that I was not selected, but I am really disappointed that no one bothered to even send an email. Would not recommend interviewing with a company who does't respect potential employee's time and effort invested in the interviewing process.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Wolters Kluwer in April 2015.

    Interview

    I applied to WK for senior professional position. Yesterday they contacted me to schedule a phone interview. They also asked about my salary requirements. I a range that is the average in my city for this position. Next morning I was waiting for the call for 15 minutes. When I got to my desk I wrote the recruiter, assuming something came out the very last minute and she couldn’t get in touch with me. No answer to it either. Then I started worry that something happened to her, maybe she got a stomach flu or water pipe in her house burst out. No naïve of me. Later in the afternoon she finally wrote me back, that she didn’t bother to contact me, because my salary requirements were too high. In fact, what they can offer financially would be right for junior position. But their post reads Senior. With lots of requirements. Poor customer service. Simple, poor manners! Now I wish she really she gets stomach flu with huge diarrhea!
