    1. Internship Interview

      Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
      Declined Offer
      Neutral Experience
      Average Interview


      Had several phone calls set up (Probably 5-6) where I was passed from one department to another. Typically they were just asking basic get to know you questions. The original department I applied to turned me down but she liked me and so passed me to another dept where she knew there was an opening. The same thing happened again until eventually I was offered an internship in a digital department but by that point I had already accepted a position with another firm. Wanted to work for Penguin badly but they strung me along.
