Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Future Science Group (London, England) in August 2018.

Interview

One assessment day. This included a quality checking test on an editorial piece, a group exercise which was on writing emails, and 2 interviews, one with the lead editor and another member of staff, and another with the managers of the editorial teams. First interview was mainly based on publishing and the job itself, the second was personality and competency based.

    Interview

    Introductory presentation about company and role
    Quality Control Assessment
    Group exercise
    individual interviews - 1st with two senior commissioning editors (who were quite cold) and the 2nd with two other employees (much more senior than the first two) who were more warm and welcoming, professional and put nerves at ease (I put this down to interviewing experience). Not sure if this was a "good cop, bad cop" scenario, don't let this put you off or lose you nerve.
