    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Reed Exhibitions (Norwalk, CT (US)).

    Interview

    The interview process was grueling. I had to interview with eight different associates within two interviews. While, the people were generally friendly, the process was a lot. Especially as a candidate that had to travel two hours to get to the interview. In the end I was rejected, despite having more experience than required.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Reed Exhibitions (Norwalk, CT (US)) in September 2017.

    Interview

    Since I wasn't a local candidate, HR kindly had me come in to meet several people at once instead of splitting it up into multiple separate-day interviews. I met with 3 different company employees in addition to the HR Director (2 other directors and the hiring manager). Everyone seemed a bit frazzled but welcoming, and had a relatively positive experience overall. Ultimately I was not offered the position, but HR Director reached out to me afterwards saying she'd love to stay in touch for future positions. Very professional all around.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Reed Exhibitions (Norwalk, CT (US)).

    Interview

    Phone interview with recruiter and two rounds of in person interviews. Fairly laid back, but guidelines were laid out for the job where certain sets of skills needed to be presented well in order to move forward. The other piece of the process was determining whether a good fit for the company was present in terms of personality, work ethic, and demeanor. Don't sweat about it too much, be confident and show your guns.

    Sales Executive Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Reed Exhibitions (Norwalk, CT (US)) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Phone interview went well. Second in person interview went well. The first and second were typical types of interviews, basically seeing if you are a good fit for the company and the role. The third interview was an all day interview and it tested your ability of being under pressure for the sales position. This was the for the central sales team and you were pretty much competing with other people to be selected to be on this team. You had to present a sales pitch in front of many employees, do a presentation, team work project, meet and greets with other employees, etc. Fun experience and it really tested your abilities.

    Interview

    It was all over the place. Wasn't even provided a job description for the position I was put forward for. Recruiter was nice, manager seemed friendly when interviewing, but very long drawn out process!!!
