    I have been working at Rowman & Littlefield Publishing as an intern



    Don't know what that last guy was after; there's nothing "cold" or "distant" about this place. It's publishing in the 21st century; it is what it is, and you're either realistic about that or you aren't. If you get your job done and don't waste time, the days go by just fine. And yes, it's not the highest paying industry; it never was.


    There's an element of bellyaching for sure. If we could get less bellyaching and more working going, I bet we'd see some positive outcomes.

    Average Interview


    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Rowman & Littlefield Publishing (Lanham, MD).


    HR will generally set up with a phone interview with the managing editor. If they like you, they'll bring you in for an in-person interview. I was hired rather quickly as the current employee was leaving the country and only had a few days to train me. There's a high rate of turnover, so if you're not selected for a particular opening, there's a good chance you can reapply in the near future for another position.
