    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Condé Nast (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Fairly straightforward for an EA position. Met with editors and had an edit test. It was more a discussion of the position than anything else, but they do like to see you're culturally inclined at Conde Nast.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Condé Nast (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Very formal, everything went through HR. Multiple forms to fill out, writing samples required. 4 separate rounds of interviews with different officers. Scheduling was a bit of a problem as they would often ask if I could meet during times I had already listed as unavailable.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    No room for negotiation. Tried for a higher salary and was told the base pay was company policy across the board. Assistants do more work than many editors in a work day and work many more hours.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Condé Nast (New York, NY) in May 2013.

    Interview

    I was invited to a general recruiting session for post-graduates. Many other job-seekers were former interns like myself, though a few had been invited because of resume submissions. It was essentially a cattle-call and the interviewer I had treated me like I wasn't worth his time. He asked if I still spoke with my former employers (of course, I had) and why I hadn't reached out to them for job recs (again, I had). None of my answers were impressive to him and he rarely even looked me in the eye. He was rude and honestly makes me want to turn my back on the company every time I consider applying for a position.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Condé Nast (Mexico City (Mexico)) in September 2014.

    Interview

    I had three sets of interviews, one with the web editor, another with the editor-in-chief and human resources. I was asked to go through a writing test too. The process took around a month, I initially interviewed for a position as collaborator but then the vacancy came available. I got the interview by contacting directly the editor and sending her my CV.
