    First round with HR; Second round with managers. What qualities to have to be a good editor? Any good quantitative skills? And some behavior questions too. It took about one hour and two managers rotated to ask questions. Not too out of the range, but need good preparation. Have to have a good sense of what they are doing there, be prepared and clear in your delivery.

    Interview

    Hiring process took months. Granted I was living abroad but after communicating with hiring staff, I never heard from them. When I moved back into the country I had a phone interview and then had to go to the houston office for a Skype interview. I was interviewed by two editors. The young woman was on her phone during the interview and the gentleman interrupted me to ask irrelevant questions. It was a bit unprofessional.
