    Copy Editor Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Cambridge, MA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Cell Press (Cambridge, MA).

    Interview

    The process lasted three weeks. I was contacted by multiple members of the HR staff, one of whom gave me incorrect information and forgot to get back to me to confirm the interview time—I had to call her the day before to confirm, even though she had said she would contact me.

    The interview lasted more than an hour and felt a bit like an interrogation. A group of employees took turns asking me questions, some of which were quite difficult and didn't seem relevant to the position. The employees I met did not make me feel welcome, and I left with a fairly negative impression of the company.

    Finally, after three weeks, seven phone calls, and two in-person meetings, the company didn't even have the courtesy to send me an e-mail letting me know they were no longer interested in me. Fortunately, by that time, I was no longer interested in them, either.
