    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at RELX Group (Dayton, OH) in May 2012.

    Interview

    They found me and reached out via retained search / recruiter who made live contact. They screened me on the phone (one person) and decided to fly me to Dayton, OH for a full day of 1:1 interviews -- nine-in-a-row with a break for lunch (still an interview). Each person asked very good questions that probed my skills and revealed something about the company. They also left ample time for my questions and answered them fully. Well done.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at RELX Group in April 2008.

    Interview

    HR said they'd been hoping I would apply for the position and scheduled a series of extremely positive interviews with a VP, several Directors, some operations people and an outside consultant. But in the end they decided to "move in a different direction" and hired someone without a JD.

    Interview

    Straight Forward. You do a LOT of interviewing before actually being offered the position. They also force you go through a battery of aptitude test, which I don't believe determines how well an employee will perform on the job, but there it is. The good thing is that anyone with at least a high school education should find no problem with the process or exam.

    Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience

    Interview

    I interviewed for a position in the Accuity unit of the RELX Group.

    The whole process involved a phone call with HR, an in person interview with the hiring manager and then an in person interview with his manager

    Bottom line is they strung me along through 4 stages with each one leaving me with the distinct impression that it was the best interview out of the bunch.

    However, I got the "sorry, but we're moving on w/o you" email.

    Kind of odd that the final interview appeared to have gone the best..was the dude being sadistic?

    Or, after processing it all, was it a classic case of NJA..

    I'm happy to say that despite the sadistic impression this company's process left me with, I was able to gain something from it myself as I nailed my very next set of interviews and have moved on to a new position.

    Think carefully about working in the Accuity NYC office as it seemed like a really boring place..kind of like a "dead zone"..the office had zero energy and was filled with half empty rooms/desks.
