Publishing Consultant Interview

Anonymous Employee in Indianapolis, IN

Positive Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Author Solutions (Indianapolis, IN) in September 2016.

Interview

Phone interview followed by an in-person interview. From start to finish the interview process took about 2 weeks. I was offered the job shortly after the in-person interview. The initial phone interview was a bit nerve wracking. There were the typical questions going over my resume and elaborating on any particulars that needed further clarification. The in-person interview was a much smoother process. I interviewed with one in person manager and 3 individuals on a speaker phone.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Author Solutions (Bloomington, IN) in May 2014.

    Interview

    Interview process was messy at the time I was hired but I believe has since been greatly improved upon. My initial interviewer was wonderful; professional, kind, and asked pertinent questions. The two individuals who conducted the second interview were sloppy, aloof, and at first had no idea what position they were interviewing me for. They have since been let go.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Author Solutions (Bloomington, IN) in March 2014.

    Interview

    Two separate interviews:

    First interview went exceptionally well due to my interviewer who happened to be my eventual manager

    Second interview went poorly due to interviewer (who was upper mgmt), who was eventually let go for incompetence

    You don't have to have a great deal of experience to be hired for this job

    Sane. Some information omitted that would help employees do critical thinking on the company. The HR contact will provide you details to emphasize on your actual interview, so that helps.
