    Special Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Philadelphia, PA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Perseus Books Group (Philadelphia, PA).

    Interview

    Applied online. Phone interview with HR in another state followed by phone interview with someone else in Boston followed by two separate in-person interviews in the Philadelphia office. They called all my references. After all that jumping through hoops I did not even get the courtesy of a call or email to notify me that they hired someone else.

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Perseus Books Group (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Boss knew me already so we talked over lunched & I got hired. Publishing is a small world and relationships matter. Personal referral is key for most jobs beyond entry level. Networking is key.

    Interview Questions

    • I didn't get asked any difficult or unexpected questions. I had a work record that made me a good candidate. The interview was more of a conversation about whether this particular job interested me, what the risks and advantages of taking it were relative to the job i already held, and what the boss's vision was for where the company was going.   1 Answer

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Perseus Books Group.

    Interview

    I submitted my resume/cover letter via email and received a reply in two days. We had a brief phone conversation to discuss the details of the position before scheduling an in person interview. The in person interview included a brief tour around the facilities, an introduction to the Senior Editor, and a sit-down conversation with the supervisor. The questions were fairly generic, and the overall tone was very welcoming and somewhat casual.
