Interview

The recruiter was very responsive and straightforward interview process. They take their time, but you will interview with plenty of people on the team that you are interviewing for. All standard interview questions, no tests.

Difficult Interview
Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Cengage (Austin, TX)

Interview

Very unprofessional and lengthy process. Total of seven interviews, one final one being a group panel presentation that took me 9 hrs to prepare. Whole process of interviewing lasted a month. On the day of my presentation even though two people were invited to the panel a total of five showed up. If I knew there were going to be five I would have designed a different presentation. Icing on the cake was that their demo login to show how I mastered their product usage was broken. So I lost a large part of what I had prepared because of their tech systems not working. 3 days after the group panel interview I got a call saying I didn’t get an offer and they went with someone else. It is what it is but I would not recommend bothering with the process because it is too lengthy and laborious. Wasted a lot of my time for nothing and incompetence. Probably did me a favor.

30 minutes, on Zoom video call, very relaxing, engaging, friendly. I felt welcomed and it like I was talking to a peer. The interviewer asked relevant questions, and responded thoroughly to my questions asked.

Interview

I had the first round of interviews where one manager was on and if you "passed" you the next manager came on about 1/2 way through to finish. Here's what's the most disheartening part, HR/Recruiting will not respond to any requests for updates. I thought I had a great interview then heard nothing, so I followed up and they completely ignored the emails. And I didn't even hound them...just 2 emails to find out where they were in the process, but no response at all.

Interview Questions
  • There was nothing earth shattering...typical sales questions.

I applied online. I interviewed at Cengage (Boston, MA) in Apr 2021

Interview

It was a HR screening interview and it was respectful and engaging. I was given the space to talk and walk the recruiter through my resume. The recruiter also explained the job description really clearly.

Interview

Extremely lengthy interview process. Over the course of several weeks I met with 3 people. In person and online via video chat. I honestly didn’t think the comp at was a good fit for me, but after so much time invested in the interview, the professional thing to do would be to follow up and let me know that I wasn’t selected and formally end the interview process. This was not the case and I simply never heard back from the woman who recruited me. Absolutely ridiculous.

I applied online. I interviewed at Cengage (Boston, MA)

Interview

I sent in a letter, my resume, and a link to my writing portfolio. The HR contact was super polite and emailed for times/dates when I could interview. When I sent her my availability, she responded that the manager wanted me two take a couple of writing tests. Nowhere in the job posting did it mention anything about writing tests. I wouldn’t have applied if it did; as a freelancer, I avoid these types of situations since I’ve been burned in the past — working hard on a sample project just to be ghosted after turning it in. And the same thing happened here: I completed the two “tests” (they were very simple - copy edit/suggest ways to make an email and a flyer better), and then I never heard from the HR contact again.

Interview

Talked to manager, then hiring manager along with recruitment HR person. Conversation was a bit chaotic and in the end realized contract for them meant W2 temp and I meant 1099. Negotiations would have been different if I'd checked my assumption early on.
