    Human Resources Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Interview

    Phone pre-screen was going well and the Human Resource person was nice up until she tried to repeat my past positions back to me. "So basically you were just an Admin Assistant." No, I wasn't but thanks for diminishing my past titles and all my hard work. Then in my rejection email, she had the nerve to say "Thank you for telling me your experience as an HR Generalist and an Administrative Assistant". First of all, administrative assistant was NEVER my job title in my past position. For the Human Resource person to diminish the positions I've held and the hard work I've done was such a complete turn off. I work in HR myself and that was just not acceptable and it really set a tone if I were to move forward in the interview process.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Argus Media.

    Interview

    Initial phone screening with HR which was very simple and dealt with your background. Next step was to come in to do a writing and math exam. The writing exam was simple, but I got short on time with the math test. The math test was like an SAT exam, but no calculator. Last step was a group panel with six different editors.

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Argus Media (Houston, TX) in October 2015.

    Interview

    Writing exercise and math/puzzle test, about 2 hours. Pretty straightforward. Called back for 2-hour meeting with various editors. Everyone was friendly, but only one person seemed really pumped about the work. They kept asking if the job "sounds too boring." Off-putting.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Argus Media (London, England (UK)) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Apply online via homepage and got a call from HR few days later. Short phone interview to discuss my motivation, background and skills for the role. Was then invited for an on-site interview in their London office one week later. However, I declined because company is unwilling to provide any interview reimbursement. That is too much of a risk for a first round interview. The pay for the role is 28,500 GBP.

    Interview Questions
