    Editorial Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Harlequin Enterprises.

    Interview

    I applied online and got an interview. I spoke with an HR rep who was very nice and made me feel comfortable right away with some small talk. He asked me about my experience and how I would handle certain situations, nothing too difficult. I was then asked to do a reader report, line edits, cover copy, and editorial letter as the next step, which was difficult because I had only done two of the four things I was asked to do. Once I learned that I was not being offered the position, I was able to get really helpful feedback on my editorial test. Overall it was a great experience.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Harlequin Enterprises (New York, NY) in May 2011.

    Interview

    I submitted my resume online and heard back a few weeks later to schedule an interview. After the interview, they sent an editorial test to complete and send back by the following week. Since I knew at that point I wasn't interested in the role, I emailed the hiring manager and told them that I appreciated the interview opportunity but wouldn't be continuing with the test.

    Interview Questions

    • The interviewer kept saying that everyone was really burnt out there and asked how I would motivate my superiors to do their work. That seemed pretty backwards to me.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Harlequin Enterprises (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in March 2016.

    Interview

    I got called for a phone interview about 2 weeks after I applied online. The phone interview was 20 minutes, few questions were asked - why I wanted to work for Harlequin, why I wanted to leave my current job. A lot of the phone interview was spent telling me about the position. We scheduled the in person interview for the same week. In person, I interviewed with the HR Manager (which was like a continuation of the phone interview) for about 30 minutes. Then I had a 1 hour interview with the person who would be my boss. The questions were not very difficult. Everyone was really nice and pleasant.

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Harlequin Enterprises (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in December 2010.

    Interview

    HR rep conducts a phone interview with you. Questions like "Why Harlequin?" "How do you learn best?" "Describe a time you worked in a group and your role in the group to meet an objective?" "Expected Salary" I think there were 6 questions in total. Don't remember the rest of them.
