I worked at Penguin Random House full-time
Lots to do, great shift leaders, not too much drama.
Sometimes it feels like high school.
Advice to Management
Take a moment to realize that not everyone can meet your expectations. But if you let them work within theirs, they can do more than you expect.
I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Penguin Random House (New York, NY) in February 2015.
I had a phone call with the HR person, and then went in to meet the person I would be reporting to. She gave me a writing assignment for a title. Then I met with some more senior people at a second interview. Overall, it took about three weeks. Even though some imprints can be casual, make sure to dress sharply, have a notebook, and come prepared with questions of your own.
