    I worked at McGraw-Hill full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    McGraw-Hill Education is a family-oriented organization and incredibly flexible creating a solid work/life balance. Collaboration between colleagues and the leadership team is a real positive. Management does not micromanage employees. Rather, you are treated as professionals and trusted to complete your work in a timely and accurate manner. The work we do at MHE is noble. We provide educational materials for instructors and students. Knowing that our work is making a difference in the world is really important and rewarding.

    Cons

    Depending on the position, travel can be intense. The industry is in flux, which has caused some turbulence but has also created opportunity.

    Outside Sales Representative Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at McGraw-Hill (Chicago, IL) in January 2015.

    Interview

    It was a four-step process that began with a recruiter phone interview and ended with my driving to another state for the final in-person interview. Along the way, I closed each interview and was given positive feedback, leading me to believe I was going to receive an offer. I was asked to complete a writing project by traveling to different college campuses. No parking or travel expenses were reimbursed. After my final interview (during which the interviewer indicated I would be moving forward,) I heard from the recruiter that I had not received the position. I attempted to follow up with the recruiter and hiring manager and received no feedback, after weeks of conversation.
