    Marketing Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Norwalk, CT
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Reed Exhibitions (Norwalk, CT) in January 2011.

    Interview

    Reed hires slowly. You will have to go through at least 5 interviews before an offer is presented or you hear back from them. HR is knowledgable and courteous. Expect to be brought into the office 2-4 times for separate interviews. Research the company, the trade show industry and their individual portfolio of shows on their corporate site before interviewing.

    Interview Questions

    • Give a solid example of an accomplishment you are particularly proud of and how you went about solving a difficult problem.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Reed Exhibitions (Norwalk, CT) in September 2017.

    Interview

    Since I wasn't a local candidate, HR kindly had me come in to meet several people at once instead of splitting it up into multiple separate-day interviews. I met with 3 different company employees in addition to the HR Director (2 other directors and the hiring manager). Everyone seemed a bit frazzled but welcoming, and had a relatively positive experience overall. Ultimately I was not offered the position, but HR Director reached out to me afterwards saying she'd love to stay in touch for future positions. Very professional all around.

    Operations Manager Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Reed Exhibitions (Norwalk, CT) in February 2014.

    Interview

    Short three interview process. Seemed like they needed to fill in pretty quickly. A little bit rushed to the point it seemed they were checking off boxes and just needed to move along. Asked lots of boilerplate questions and seemed more interested in talking about the company culture than the position.
