    I worked at Macmillan Publishers full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I loved interning here. Most colleagues in your imprint make a point to get to know you. I always had plenty of work to do, and never found myself sitting at my desk and twiggling my thumbs. After just a week or so of training, I was given real responsibilities (as opposed to purely busy work). My supervisors took the time to teach my about their respective departments (publicity and editorial) and the publishing processes as a whole.

    Cons

    Nothing major, but: (1)Notification of acceptance of summer internship program comes in late May, which does not leave a lot of time to secure housing in NYC for those who may need it. (2) You don't get your key card for at least 2 weeks, which makes it harder for you to be helpful and means you have to ask someone for a key card every time you have to use the restroom. (3) For the spring internship, there are no events where you can meet the other interns.

    Advice to Management

    Give keycards to interns as early as possible, and organize at least one event in the spring where interns can meet one another.

    Outside Sales Representative Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Macmillan Publishers (New York, NY) in May 2017.

    Interview

    The interview was very casual. I knew the RM and he also had the technology specialist there for the interview. I was very experienced and was a top performer at several rival companies. This is sad because they hired someone with no experience which according to several insiders I know is common now. Maybe this is why Macmillan can't increase their market share. Experience counts.
