Creative colleagues, learn a lot due to amount of responsibilities given to each staffer.
Owners are slave-drivers with horrible business sense, which trickled down to VPs who then had no choice but to foist unrealistic expectations, goals, and workloads onto all employees. When employees couldn't meet goals they were quickly fired; others would burnout and move on.
Advice to Management
Owners need to hire and listen to someone who knows how to run a business based on financial modeling and not via emotion, reaction, and passing trends. Need to compensate employees for the workload given to them.
I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Assouline Publishing (New York, NY) in March 2012.
I applied online through my university's website. I was contacted initially by an internal employee who seemed very interested and set up a time that would be convenient since I was flying in from a different city. After the first interview, I was directed to the HR manager who set up a time for a second round interview. While both interviews did go smoothly and seemed promising, I had to follow up after not hearing back for a few weeks, only to hear I was declined an offer. After paying out of pocket to travel and meet in person both times, I could not have been more insulted. Unethical and unprofessional.
