    I worked at HarperCollins part-time (more than an year)


    A fantastic place to learn and grow. Everyone is really helpful and the process helps you move up the ladder quickly.


    Can be really cliquey and hard to move between groups. Socializing with other sections of the company is next to zero and it's difficult to meet those outside your office.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at HarperCollins.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by someone in HR after an employee referral and had an interview right away. Second interview was the very next week. After that, I didn't hear back from HR or the hiring manager until I prompted them with an email. Ultimately, I did not get the job, but the process was very easy-going, and, for the most part they were pretty communicative. The people were very nice and upfront and overall, a good experience.
