    Corporate Communications Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Scholastic (New York, NY).

    Interview

    The interviewer was very nice and easy to talk to. I felt extremely comfortable, and made sure all my questions were answered. It felt more like a conversation than anything, it was pretty organic. Definitely recommend doing a lot of research and being prepared, since it is a pretty big deal, and I was extremely nervous as it was my first interview. Love the company and hope I can get another interview in the future.

    I would say the interview process was average. It took several weeks to complete the process. I was disappointed but I would apply again if the position opens up again. OK experience overall.

    Average Interview

    Interview

    Disrespectful. They left me a voicemail message to call back and set up an interview. Unfortunately, unable to reach them because HR doesn't answer their phones; and they do not return phone messages. What kind of an organization does this? They must be disorganized or stupid or don't care....or all of the above. I vote for all of the above.

    Interview Questions

    • There was no question as they never returned my call. How about that for a bizarre situation.? They asked me to set up an interview, but they were not reachable.   Answer Question

    Intern Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Scholastic (New York, NY) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Process took about three or four weeks. First you have a phone interview with the Hiring Manager and then an on-site interview at Scholastic offices in NY. HM was very nice and seemed very excited about her job, seems like she really enjoys talking to people. Fairly simple, talk about my resume and why Scholastic. Interview at the office was very laid back, at an office, pretty standard and conversational, they asked some questions about Scholastic itself to know if you were familiar with it.The problem was that they told me they'd let me know in a week as it was a spring internship and had to let me know to work my schedule, but took almost two weeks to respond. The thing that bothered me is that NY Scholastic people never responded my follow up e-mails, HM woman did saying they had hired someone the week before.

    Interview

    I met with HR. First I met with a recruiter and than I met with the head of the HR department. They were extremely nice and easy to talk to. We talked about books for the most part. I forgot I was in an interview. They then forwarded me two different jobs they thought i would be right for and set up interviews.
