    I have been working at Reed Exhibitions full-time (More than a year)


    Reed Exhibitions is a great place to work in general! However, I recently got to participate in an RE Cares event, which brought my feelings about the company even higher. RE Cares allows employees to take time to volunteer at a number of foundations and give back to the community! I had the opportunity to volunteer at Kids in Crisis in Cos Cob, CT and it was such a great experience. They were truly grateful for the work that our group did that day.

    These are not just one time deals either. Reed Exhibitions continues to support a number of organizations throughout the years! Not having this opportunity at previous employers, I feel very lucky to have the opportunity offered to me at Reed. I look forward to volunteering again!


    From my experience, I do not have anything negative to say.

    Average Interview


    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Reed Exhibitions (Norwalk, CT) in June 2016.


    Met with HR person and two employees who would be my supervisor. They were wonderful! In the end I felt the job itself wasn't the right fit for me, but great company and great people!
