    Average Interview

    Application

    Interview

    You are given a phone interview, an interview with HR, and then several interviews with the sales team, and senior vice publisher.The process of the interview was not nerve wracking which was nice, and you know you've got the green light if they're giving you tons of back issue magazines.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Meredith Corporation (New York, NY) in July 2014.

    Interview

    Applied through ed2010.com. Received an email the next day from the fashion assistant to come in for an interview. Interviewed the following week, but never heard back. I thought the interview went well, so I assume they went with someone with more experience (I don't have any fashion experience).

    Assistant to the Editor-in-Chief of MORE Magazine Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took a week. I interviewed at Meredith Corporation (New York, NY) in March 2014.

    Interview

    Was forwarded the EIC's public Facebook post regarding her search for a new assistant. I emailed her my resume and cover letter, and was contacted by the assistant that was being replaced to set up an interview the following week. I interviewed in the EIC's office with the assistant but never saw the EIC. Assistant was very nice, asked standard questions, and was encouraging. We got along great but she was leaving a month earlier than I was able to start, so I knew in the interview that it wasn't going to work out. I (female) wore a fitted black suit and felt really overdressed compared to the business casual attire of everyone else I saw.

    Interview Questions

    • She told me that the EIC once had an assistant who sent her pregnant, in December, to the wrong restaurant--I think just to watch for my reaction?   Answer Question

    Direct Marketing Associate Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Meredith Corporation (New York, NY) in December 2012.

    Interview

    Applied online through campus recruiting and then had a phone interview. In-person interview when I was in NYC (was applying from out of state). The woman who interviewed was very kind and explained that she needed someone with specialized experience. I asked why she had me come in for the second interview (considering my obvious lack of direct marketing experience) and she said she liked me and was hoping to find something relevant to direct marketing in my background. I am wondering why the job was posted on a college career database if they were not really looking for entry level candidates.

    Interview Questions

    • Give me an example of a project that was your resposibility that reaped returns for a company or organization (raising money for a charity, sales, etc.? How much money exactly?   Answer Question
