    Editor Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at PennWell Corporation.

    Interview

    The interview was via Skype and it was very casual and laid back. It lasted only about 15 minutes and there were no difficult questions, aside from "What is your biggest weakness." I just talked about what I had done in my professional past and they had me email an editing test to the supervisor. There was no drug test or background check, and they didn't even ask me for references. It was the easiest interview I've ever experienced.
    After I accepted their offer of employment, though, I found that the interviewer had not been honest with me about what to expect from the job and mislead me about the outlook for the company, which is the reason for citing this interview as a negative experience.
