I worked at Penguin Group (More than 10 years)
I enjoyed working for penguin. The people were great to work for. The benefit were real good.
It closed the door after Random House merged with us.
I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Penguin Group (New York, NY) in August 2015.
I applied through HR, initially without referrals. HR responded within two weeks. I had an initial interview with a recruiter and my immediate supervisors the first time, and then about two-three weeks later (I think this was an unusually long gap) had my second and final interview with various other people in the imprint and a followup with my supervisors. I was notified within a week.
