Production Editor Interview

Production Editor

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 6 weeks - interviewed at Wolters Kluwer.

Interview Details – Have been referred to many jobs at Wolters Kluwer. Always the same - go through filling out lengthy online app and uploading resume. I get call from contract recruiter, set up phone interview. Always told that they will be speaking with hiring manager and will get back to me about next round interviews. Every single time I hear back 4-6 weeks after initial phone interview that they decided to go with internal candidate. Not sure if this is the 'excuse' used to cut the list, or if they really are only promoting from within. If that's the case, why drag someone through the process - screen internal candidates first.

Interview Question – There were no unusual questions asked.   Answer Question

Director Interview

Director
Chicago, IL

I applied online and the process took 3+ weeks - interviewed at Wolters Kluwer in May 2014.

Interview Details – Ad-hoc and poorly managed from Senior Management.
Co-ordinators were good. But management was disorganized.
Management had no sense of asking questions. Interviewers need training in the art of taking interviews.
Junior staff promoted to senior level without calibrations. Too many chiefs and higher designations diluting the entire hierarchy

Interview Question – No strategic questions. Only ad-hoc questions and more about the frustrations in the company   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – Not sure about the culture of the company.
Very personalized and favorites recruitment. Emphasis is not on strategic direction but tactical resolution only. Would have reduced my IQ level.

Junior Copy Writer Interview

Junior Copy Writer
Philadelphia, PA

I applied through an employee referral and interviewed at Wolters Kluwer.

Interview Details – After an email from an out-of-state recruiter, I had set up an interview. There was no communication with the actual office I was interviewing with before or after the interview even though I had reached out/followed up. Then, the recruiter began to ignore me after I followed up. I never even received an automated email about the position. It left an awful taste in my mouth.

Interview Question – Very basic questions - often about items on my resume. I recommend knowing your resume backwards and forwards.   Answer Question

Field Sales Representative Interview

Field Sales Representative

Interviewed at Wolters Kluwer

Interview Details – Was told there are anywhere from 5-7 interviews - 1 phone interview is mostly informational with internal recruiter, 1 is face to face with district manager, 2-3 are phone interviews with other district managers from other regions, then face to face with VP of sales.

Interview Question – Phone interviews were nothing out of ordinary, 'what makes you a good fit, why have you been successful, how do you describe yourself'. "Transformation" going on at company, lots of veteran reps have left, others cut.   Answer Question
