    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Oxford University Press full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Some of the best people, including my boss, that I could imagine working with. Everyone supports each other through everything. Plus, the job is quite flexible and hands off from management, so there's a lot of opportunity for setting your own schedule.

    Cons

    If you're coming into the company from a manager role or above, excellent, you have a voice and contribution to the overall goals of the company. Anything from Sales Rep or lower and you're stuck there. Plus, there aren't nearly enough people hired for the workload across the board.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Oxford University Press (Cary, NC).

    Interview

    First interviewed with an HR rep on the phone, not about job duty specifics but about general personality/career questions. Then I had 2 interviews in person with a senior manager and marketing manager. I was given some tasks to prepare prior to the first interview (e.g. a prioritization exercise). I did receive a job offer, which was managed by the central HR office.
