    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Merion Matters (King of Prussia, PA).

    Interview

    The interview process is extremely thorough and they leave no detail forgotten. Have your story set before your interview and know exactly what your direction is for the future (and make sure it is in line with the position you are applying for or forget about an offer). You will not survive if you have not done thorough research on not only the position you are applying for but the company as a whole. You should also (mentally) prepare a long list of thoughtful and relevant questions for evey person who interviews you or you do not stand a chance. Testing is performed for every position - written, role plays, technical, etc.

    Interview Questions

    • They operate using a behavioral based interview style for most positions. Think of situations that you have encountered in your professional life that would apply to the role you are interviewing for.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    They will negotiate with you over $500...(not exaggerating). Have a firm but realistic idea of what salary you will accept. There salaries are overall low-average but also realistic for the size of the company and for what you're responsibilities will entail. They do a great job of discussing a potential offer during the interview/reference checking process so there really should be no surprises when an offer is made.

    Interview

    It was very typical of most companies. The first interview was on the phone with the Human Resources Recruiter. Then there was a face to face with upper management and a second with the owners.

    Editor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in King of Prussia, PA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Merion Matters (King of Prussia, PA) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Very extensive phone screen to start, probably around 45 min worth of time going over my entire resume. Came in for a first interview with the Editorial Director, lasted approx. an hour and was given testing materials at the conclusion. Completed those and was invited back for a second interview, this time with the Sales Director, Marketing Director, the Editorial Director/an Associate Editor and finally HR. Total time spanned was around 3 hours. References were called and dates were discussed, but it seemed to kind of fizzle out and nothing ever materialized.
