    The interview process is lengthy...so prepare for at least an hour of your time. Also, prepare for lots of math and vocabulary comparison "tests". Dress like you want the job too...this should not need to be stated but obviously some people have zero common sense.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Progressive Business Publications.

    Interview

    Was contacted via email after I applied. HR person asked a few questions and then asked me to come in for an in person interview. First part was a meeting with HR then I took a test that they provided. I then met with two team members who I would be working with directly. About halfway through the interview with them I realized that this was not the job I applied for. The HR person did not tell me before hand and I was not correctly prepared for this interview. Very unprofessional and I feel as though I was set up for failure and didn't have a fair chance at the job right out of the gate. The least she could have done was told me "hey I know you applied for this job but I think you would be a fit for this one as well" so I could at least prepare properly. Disappointing.
