    I have been working at Penguin Random House full-time

    Pros

    PRH has great perks, amazing vacation package, summer fridays, etc. The community is friendly and collaborative at lower and middle levels.

    Cons

    Upper management gets very political. There isn’t a lot of trust, and it causes a tense trickle-down environment

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Penguin Random House (New York, NY) in February 2015.

    Interview

    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.

    Interview Questions

    • Honestly, it was the standard stuff. Just be personable and knowledgable about the imprint.   Answer Question
