    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at EBSCO (Birmingham, AL) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Lengthy and it seemed like they try to set you up for failure. Trial by fire at least if you don't have the answer they guide you to see how much you know

    Corporate Communications Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at EBSCO (Birmingham, AL) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Initially contacted by a recruiter, who provided logistics for interview. Panel style interview with six respective managers. The interview lasted about half and hour and I got immediate feedback from my future direct report. The interview questions were not of your typical "tell me about yourself" variety, instead they focused heavily on experience and expectations. Ladies, wear flat shoes! Very picturesque yet rocky campus.

    Online Marketing Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at EBSCO (Birmingham, AL) in September 2014.

    Interview

    I went through 2 interview rounds. The first was with the manager and the team I'd be working with. The 2nd was with the manager, the VP of the department, and workers from other departments that I'd be working with.
    In both interviews the panels' questions were very pointed. They knew exactly what they were looking for. But at the same time, they were very approachable and social. They made it clear that work culture was very important to them. They look for not only top talent, but people who enjoy what they do and work well with others.

    Typist Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at EBSCO (Atlanta, GA).

    Interview

    It's been a while, but let me see if I remember correctly. I had an impromptu phone interview at first. Then, a few weeks later, I was contacted for an interview in office. The first part of the in office interview was a typing test. They told me that I could continue the interview if I typed above 75wpm (I think?). I passed it. Then, I had an interview with the head of HR, and then I had an interview with who was to be my manager. The interview with HR was typical and professional. The interview with my manager was behavioral. The manager asked me about my school, what activities I was involved in (I'm a college student).

    Interview Questions

    • Unfortunately, I can't remember. I will say that I can't remember one question in particular really throwing me off, but I will say it wasn't the easiest interview I've ever had.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Didn't negotiate. I don't think you can.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at EBSCO (Birmingham, AL) in September 2010.

    Interview

    The hiring and interview process was fine and quick. The job inself was not defined and expectations were set by folks who did not know a thing about the technology. The management was totally out of touch with technology. The company retains employees for a long time and it's like a mafia of who know who.

    Negotiation

    The manager who negotiated salary with me was excellent and did a great job in trying to keep me happy.
