I worked at Harlequin Enterprises full-time
A positive company culture with a caring attitude toward employees. Equitable compensation and good benefits. Has encouraged professional development particularly in support of higher levels of management staff.
They've been bought out by Harper Collins within the last year which could have some impact on future opportunities and structure. It would seem likely that many of the marketing, editorial and senior management positions might be phased out of Toronto and into New York City.
Advice to Management
Need to figure out ways to broaden the publishing programs beyond romance and fiction for women which they have been trying to do for some time.

I applied online and got an interview. I spoke with an HR rep who was very nice and made me feel comfortable right away with some small talk. He asked me about my experience and how I would handle certain situations, nothing too difficult. I was then asked to do a reader report, line edits, cover copy, and editorial letter as the next step, which was difficult because I had only done two of the four things I was asked to do. Once I learned that I was not being offered the position, I was able to get really helpful feedback on my editorial test. Overall it was a great experience.
