    IT Operations/Support Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY (US)
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Dennis Publishing (New York, NY (US)) in November 2019.

    Interview

    Initially received a message from company recruiter on position for their new NYC office. Was only two stages: phone screen and in-person interview with office manager and IT Manager for the whole company. Process took slightly over a month.

    Would've given this a positive rating if weren't for the fact that I was ghosted in the end. A real shame, since the managers came across as really personable and down-to-earth.

    Junior Digital Designer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Dennis Publishing (London, England) in October 2019.

    Interview

    Absolutely brilliant company. Staff was really friendly and have shown actual interest in my application and portfolio. Initial phone interview was conducted, it was just a chat about the company and little bit about yourself and to set up the face to face interview.

    Face to face interview is just more of the same as phone interview. Had a chat about myself and my portfolio and my interest and things like that. Absolutely relax environment. I would definite recommend everyone to apply.

    Content Strategist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Dennis Publishing (London, England) in August 2018.

    Interview

    Although the company was very communicative and transparent initially, they ghosted me at the last stage and never responded to any of my follow-up emails.

    This was after going through a phone interview, a panel interview, and a presentation of a take-home project that I spent many hours researching and creating. During the presentation, they even mentioned that they intended to use my recommendations on an upcoming internal project.

    Avoid spending sinking too much time into a take-home assignment for this company.

    Publishing Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Dennis Publishing.

    Interview

    I turned up having spent days working on a presentation where the interview kept getting moved to be greeted by a team of three. One announced he had not even bothered to review my CV, and so when I went through my presentation he persistantly challenged me on whether ot not all of the things weer do-able but had he reviewed my CV before he would seen that I had done similar. Another got defensive when I questioned their approach to a certain area (yet it was in the brief) and then took it upon himself to openly be agressive and attacking in his questioning and the final one who seemed decent ended up apologising at the end of the interview whilst escorting me out for their conduct. Just terrible & revolting behaviour. I left thinking I would never ever work there. Since that time Dennis has only continued to diminish in stature and I know why!

    Interview Questions

    • Well along the lines of can you really from the one that didn't bother to review my CV.
      Another just attacking. Using phrases like "Do you really think" aggressively.   1 Answer

    The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Dennis Publishing.

    HR Interviewer was late, telephone equipment wasn't working properly, no apologies and not very professional. Salary range for role was well below industry average, there was very little point taking the interview beyond telephone interview.
