    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Penguin Group (New York, NY) in August 2015.

    Interview

    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.
