    Interview

    After application and acceptance from company, the HR rep will call you to verify a time and date for your first interview.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Wolters Kluwer (Chicago, IL) in November 2017.

    Interview

    Very happy with the process. was contacted about the job less then a week from applying about a phone interview with the recruiter. The following Monday, It was less then 15 minutes long and was contacted the same day about speaking with the hiring manager. Had the phone interview two days later. The next Monday heard back about an in person interview which was 4 days later. The in person interview is where everything became unfortunate. I really enjoyed my time interviewing with everyone, however the hiring manager was asking me the same questions asked over the phone and I probably didn't give the most detailed answers they were looking for. I was then interviews by the team which also threw me off bc I was being interviewed by someone who was hired not too long ago. Lastly I was given a problem to "solve" . My expectations are what lost me the job, I had hoped they would be willing to work with me knowing that I lacked some small parts of the job given that I am a recent graduate. Overall, I still really liked this company and would still look forward to other opportunities.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Wolters Kluwer in November 2017.

    Interview

    30 minute phone interview with corporate recruiter, then another with hiring manager. Both had clearly read my resume and understood how my experience would match with the position. I was able to get clear and detailed answers to my questions about how the role fit with others at at the company. Hiring manager was candid in speaking about how they are re-evaluating some billing metrics and that there were periods of time where you'd work 10 -12 hour days, but it was not always like that. You usually don't get that level of honesty in a phone screen.

    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Wolters Kluwer (Atlanta, GA) in August 2017.

    Interview

    Very long and drawn out (over 3 months). They give you a verbal offer then a written offer. After they have dragged their feet for so long you have 72 hours to accept their offer or it is void.

    Ultimately I failed the background check. It was supposed to be 7 years but they looked back almost 8 and found a felony conviction over 7 years old. Yes I know my conviction is my own fault but if the background check was truly 7 years or they would have done the background check one month later...nothing would have shown up.

    I was told the background check was 7 otherwise i would not have even applied.

    Global Society Program and Partnership Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Wolters Kluwer (Waltham, MA) in May 2017.

    Interview

    1 Call with Recruiter
    1 Call with Hiring Manager
    4 face-to-face interviews with Hiring Manager and 3 additional team-members
    3 additional Face-to-face interviews, with Hiring Manager again followed by interviews with 2 VPs

    I heard about this opportunity through a referral. I initially applied for a different roll and later decided to applied for Global Society Program and Partnership Manager because during my call with Hiring manager, she saw a fit on me with the role I ended up interviewing for. Although I am a great fit for the role, after all meetings and conversations, I kind of built expectations that I was going to get an offer but it didn't happen.

    Good Interview process; nothing out of the normal. Very smart people working at WK.
