    I have been working at W.W. Norton full-time

    Pros

    Norton is one of the best companies I have worked for. Everyone is so welcoming and truly enjoys working in publishing and creating "books that live."

    Cons

    I wish there were more opportunities to telecommute.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at W.W. Norton.

    Interview

    Interviewed by Creative Director, Marketing Director, and Editor-in-Chief. Questions were very thoughtful and job-specific, and focused on fit more than on expertise.
