    Intern Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Rodale in November 2016.

    Interview

    I submitted my resume and cover letter on their career website in November. A recruiter contacted me a few days later through email to set up a phone interview. She was nice and asked standard questions about my prior roles and my personality. I felt I performed OK with a few bumps when I got nervous, but overall I think I was able to deliver my passion for the publication as well as my qualifications. Unfortunately, after the interview, it was dead silent and I figured I wouldn't be moving forward with the edit tests whether because I didn't perform well with the recruiter or the hiring manger didn't like my application--who knows. Best of luck to you all though!

    Fairly easy interview; style of interview was that of a conversation instead of the typical Q&A. I was contacted a week after the 1:1 interview and informed that they moved forward with another candidate.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Rodale.

    Interview

    Applied for an intern position in May of 2014, and got a call from HR shortly after. Standard questions, from there I had a phone call with the hiring manager. We immediately hit it off, and it was clear that I had the skills she was looking for. I was then called in to their New York office where I met with the hiring manager, and we had a nice conversation again, once again standard behavioral questions. I was then shuffled off to meet with one of the buyers. She was extremely nice, and we had a great conversation, I even worked with a startup company she was trying to get into contact with, so overall we had a great conversation. I then was taken to meet with the other buyer and that's where things spiraled out of control. While everyone else I met treated me with respect, this woman showed anything but that. She told me I had the wrong major, and that I "didn't feel right" for the position. She then continued to berate my career aspirations by telling me that no one would ever hire me. I left completely stunned that anyone would attack someone in that manner on an interview. Not sure why the company would drag me through the entire interview process only to be put in front of that dragon. Will never apply for another job at the company, nor will I ever purchase one of their products.

    Web Producer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Rodale (Emmaus, PA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Interview process was pretty standard and everyone was really nice in person. However, afterward there was total radio silence.

    Generally, I get it, like, why have that awkward conversation? But, shortly after, I had been offered a job elsewhere and reached out to "check in," which, to be honest, was intended to take myself out of the running. But, I still feel like they could have at least told me they were going in a different direction or some other euphemism for not choosing me.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Rodale in April 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online, received short phone call from Human Resources to schedule a FaceTime interview. Two days later had a short FaceTime interview with an editorial assistant. The interview was not for the internship that I had applied for and they asked me only 2-3 questions and the interview lasted for about 15 minutes. An hour after the interview ended, I got a general HR email saying that they chose someone else. Very bizarre and confusing interview process.
