    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Reed Elsevier Group (Saint Louis, MI).

    five separate face to face interviews. Nothing unexpected. Each interviewer asked the same basic questions. Did not think it was a very good process. Panel interview would have been better.

    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.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Reed Elsevier Group (Philadelphia, PA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Received a phone call from a recruiter who viewed my resume from an online job site. Explained the job position in more detail and set up a face to face interview with the hiring manager.

    Face to face interview was easy, although the employees seemed a little cold. After the interview I reached out to the recruiter, after my third attempt, received an email stating he did not receive any feedback from the hiring manager, but will reach out for details. Never heard from the recruiter again.

    Took about a month. First I received an email from a recruiter about my resume I had sent. Two weeks later I had a phone interview with HR and then the department director and a week after that I interviewed with 5 more people, in person. They were all very friendly and it was a great experience. The offices were nice and everyone seemed happy to be there. I got an offer a week later.
