    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Simon & Schuster (New York, NY) in June 2017.

    Interview

    Got an email the same day I applied. Had to schedule the interview twice because the employer's schedule changed within the hour of my reply. Met with department heads for about an hour and then was on my way.
