Online Editor Interview

Online Editor
London, England

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at LexisNexis Legal & Professional in August 2010.

Interview Details Applied as per the instructions in the job advert on the company website. A few weeks later got a call from their HR asking me to attend an interview at the company's headquarters. I didn't know in advance who would be interviewing me. In the end it was three people - the managing editors from two different teams (they weren't sure which team I'd be better suitable for based on my previous experience) and their manager, the publisher. The interview lasted about an hour, the interviewers were friendly and gave me an opportunity to ask questions. They told me they were doing other interviews and would get back to me soon. Two weeks later I received a letter from HR with a job offer, which I accepted and was able to start the new job 5 days later.

Interview Question – It was the first job I got after a career change so the most difficult question in the interview was trying to apply my previous experience to the new job description. But they weren't too hard on me.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No opportunity to negotiate

Web Developer Interview

Web Developer

I applied through a recruiter and interviewed at LexisNexis Legal & Professional.

Interview Details TEK Systems represented me to Lexis Nexis, back in 2007. TEK Systems paid one way to fly me from Naples, Florida to Dayton, Ohio. I was "too laid back" as they put it to TEK Systems.

Interview Question – They wanted HTML, CSS and basic Javascript. When they prompted me to question back during interview, I was like, this sounds like a pretty easy job & said something like let me see what you've got going on-screen." They didn't want to do that.   View Answer

Very Difficult Interview

Legal Research Analyst Interview

Legal Research Analyst
Dayton, OH (US)

I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at LexisNexis Legal & Professional in July 2014.

Interview Details It took a month and a half from the initial application via their application system to being contacted by a recruiter. Initially, we set a date for a phone interview, but the recruiter canceled it with less than one hour before the interview VIA EMAIL and not by phone. This caught me off guard as I specifically took a day off of work to accommodate the interview appointment. This is also unacceptable given the short notice period and the lack of courtesy to notify me by phone as I am not always tied to my computer. We made subsequent attempts at re-scheduling the phone interview, but the recruiter flatly stated that she rather attends softball practices than to interview me for 15 minutes over the phone and was unwilling to fit me into her schedule. Because I already took a day off for this, I could not take more days off just to have further cancellations, as such I could only conduct interview at or after 5PM, which in many corporations are still considered within business hours. When I contacted her supervisor to lodge a complaint, I received a nice and professional response from him. Thereafter, she lied and called me during a time she proposed earlier at 3PM, a time which I stated clearly I would not be available due to my current employment. This is clear to me that it was her last attempt to show her "effort" to her supervisor at scheduling my interview. It's a "CYA" move at best. No further contact was made about the position even though I wrote her and tried to make nice by characterizing her call as "mis-communication". I am disappointed that such a reputable company would allow a recruiter to treat a job seeker this way since a lot of job seekers who are employed cannot just drop their work to answer phone calls. The fact that I already used a vacation day to accommodate her but she canceled with less than an hour to the interview time should speak volume about how you will be treated once hired. I went from being very excited to be given a phone interview to highly disappointed and irritated by the irresponsible behavior and lack of courtesy of LexisNexis.

Interview Question – To be sure that the talent recruiter will keep the interview time with you.   View Answer

Very Easy Interview

Product Manager Interview

Product Manager
New Providence, NJ (US)

I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at LexisNexis Legal & Professional in January 2011.

Interview Details I was already working for the company for five years, so the hire was more of an internal transfer. I had a total of three interviews, one with the VP of our division, one with the Director of CX, and one with the hiring manager who was VP of Product. The most of the questions were related to my background and experience.

Negotiation Details – Did not negotiate

Business Analyst Interview

Business Analyst
Durban (South Africa)

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 3 months - interviewed at LexisNexis Legal & Professional in September 2012.

Interview Details The hiring agency was very good and professional and arranged everything very well. An initial lengthy test started the process. It was quite difficult to do because it was an extremely noisy environment at the time, so the maths questions were more difficult than they should have been because of the shouting in the office which housed the test booths. The actual interview was arranged by the agency. I was made to wait a while before the interview which started a bit late. Questions were fair. The second interview was with one of the managers. I personally felt that he lacked focus during the interview, or was distracted. He was very charming but I didn't think that he was sincere. I was then left hanging afterwards with no decision, although they'd given the agency the impression that they were keen. It all then dwindled away with the vague "they aren't quite sure what they are looking for" and no actual feedback. Most unprofessional.

User Experience Engineer/UI Designer Interview

User Experience Engineer/UI Designer
Alpharetta, GA (US)

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 3 days - interviewed at LexisNexis Legal & Professional in May 2013.

Interview Details I had several phone interviews with different dev teams at this great company in months prior to this opportunity. As soon as they recieved my resume from the contracting agency they called me in immediately for a 1-on1 interview. The entire process took about a week, from submitting my resume, to the interview, and the offer.

Interview Question – I wouldn't say the interview was difficult, but because the position required advanced UI Design knowledge and experience, you would need to be on top of your game to even hold a conversation with these folks. So from my perspective I wasn't thrown any difficult questions in the interview as my portfolio and previous dev experience speak for themselves. We discussed my portfolio, prior work experiences, websites I've built and designed, and then we looked at some internal applications and discussed what my approach toward updating the UI would be.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Contract position, initially for 3 months which "could be" extended after that. Generous benefit package (through contracting agency). My contract was extended several times for total engagement of 13 months on site.

Software Engineer Interview

Software Engineer
Dayton, OH (US)

I applied through a recruiter - interviewed at LexisNexis Legal & Professional in July 2014.

Interview Details I applied through a recruiter, and received a request for an interview within a few days. Initially was a telephone interview and then followed up with an in-person interview with the team a few days later. Upon arrival I met with the team in a conference room with a projector screen, then we went over some previous projects I've worked on as well as some source code. Most of the process was going over a little bit of 'code review' as well as a conversation regarding their project and current challenges. At the end of the interview I felt confident that I would be resourceful to the team.

Interview Question – I suppose some would find being questioned by a group of people difficult. However I found it exhilarating.   Answer Question

Software Engineer Interview

Software Engineer

Interviewed at LexisNexis Legal & Professional

Interview Details After a phone screen I finally landed an in-person interview. It was very awkward from the beginning. The hiring manger sent a calendar invite with the location of "My Office." Sure, "My Office" might be recognized by his browser and log in credentials, but nobody else's (remember that this is an IT manager). After emailing for clarification, he didn't reply until five minutes before the scheduled interview. Luckily I had found the headquarters but still didn't know which building, etc. He replied "When you enter the campus there are two buildings on your left. Go to the entrance." This still didn't clarify whether one of the two buildings on the left or the main building. I managed to enter the main building, although it wasn't the one he was trying to tell me, he found me nonetheless. The people were friendly, didn't notice anything cult-like. Pretty standard interview despite being interrupted by someone attempting to deliver an ergonomic chair. I elaborated on my experiences with x, y and z appropriately. The very next day I received a rejection email. Next please.

Account Executive Law Schools Interview

Account Executive Law Schools

I applied online and the process took 6 weeks - interviewed at LexisNexis Legal & Professional.

Interview Details 4 telephone interviews (with hiring manager, HR department and current Account Executives) and 1 web-based presentation interview. All were very friendly and helpful. Seemed legitimately concerned about whether this position for a fit for me, as well as me being a fit for the company.

Interview Question – Fairly expected questions. Lots of focus on the "independent"/solitary nature of the home-based position.   Answer Question
