    First the applicant shall enter an English (around 30 MCQ), IQ (around 15 MCQ) & technical test (It depends on the job you're applying for) for almost 3 hours as a whole.
    If you've passed the English test which they don't tell what score you ranked assuming it's credential you'll go to the second interview.
    Second interview with the finance manager and a higher HR position to see & review your qualifications and set your rank among whose were chosen from filter process one.
    Third interview with the CEO/unit business manager, for me it was with the CEO and it was all about an overview of the approved applicant after those processes you have been through, he asked 2 questions one of them was relevant and the other wasn't, I answered the relevant question and the other I pointed out it's irrelevant question toward the job I am applying for and he understood. They asked if I am studying/interested with any other field/subjects.

    Copy Editor Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Hindawi Publishing.

    Interview

    I applied to the position online. They contacted me about two weeks later for an English test. They let you in a nice, clean room where you sit to take the exam with other people taking it too. Once you sit, they will give you papers to fill with your basic information, basically the same info in your CV. Then, you proceed with the first test which is easy if your English is at least good. The second exam is only for copy editors. It is easy if you know what you are doing or you have done it before. The only thing is that if your test is scheduled before 12:00 pm, you might want to speed up a little bit since the company's lunch break starts at 12 and they will have to take the exam paper of you and let you wait in the lobby until they are back at 1:00 pm. If you finish before this time, you might have the chance to have your first interview. The 1st interview is with the managers and they were nice.

    I first applied online and then they called to schedule the English test ,I took the test and it was okay/average and then they called me again for the 1st interview ,i was interviewed by two people and they were nice and most of the questions were personal to get to know me better ,then they called again to schedule my second and final interview ,I went and it was horrible ,I was interviewed by a manager who didn't even introduce himself at first and kept asking a lot of unrelated questions and told me literally that the position doesn't require English or technical skills it's all about your personality ,he didn't seem nice or helpful and I had the feeling that I'm not getting the job eventually.
