    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.

    Senior Architect Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Scholastic (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I wish the interviewer knew what they were asking. Job description or interview questions doesn't match the actual responsibilities. First they had telephonic round then they said one person wants to interview on site but, then many ended up interviewing, some in person and some over the phone.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Not able to negotiate. If they need you badly they will pay well, regardless of the position. This is the only company where business analysts get paid more then senior technical engineers, as they have no experience about the outside world.

    Publicity Assistant Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Scholastic (New York, NY) in April 2016.

    Interview

    It was an average interview process. It was comfortable but I wasn't completely at ease. They asked the typical questions and wanted to know why I wanted to work there and why in that field in particular (publishing and publicity, specifically). They didn't do anything to make me ill at ease, but they didn't do anything to try to make me more comfortable, either. And it was 2 people interviewing me, so it felt like there was more pressure.
