    Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Thousand Oaks, CA (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I interviewed at SAGE Publishing (Thousand Oaks, CA (US)) in November 2018.

    Interview

    Disorganized and wasted my time. Had me go to HQ and then, the panel is not even prepared and had the wrong set of documents. Was advised to wait for almost 2 months and was always told that was being considered for the position.

    Had I not decided to make a follow up, will not know that the position has been filled. Very disorganized.

    Intern Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at SAGE Publishing (Thousand Oaks, CA (US)) in February 2014.

    Interview

    The hiring process started with an Initial phone interview with an executive manager, then an in-person interview with another manager the following week. The phone interview consisted of basic interview questions about my work history and what I was comfortable doing, along with a brief descriptions of what duties the intern position entailed. The in-person interview consisted of similar type questions/discussion. Following the in-person interview, I completed an at-home test/assessment with an allotted time of about two hours to complete; it tested my ability to follow instructions, think creatively, and correct spelling and grammar.

    Negotiation

    There were no offers extended to me to negotiate, although I did request if the starting pay rate could be higher; HR kindly accepted my request and informed the hiring manager. The hiring manager said that the pay rate was not negotiable because it was at the higher end of the range that compared to similar type, full-time positions at the company. HR informed me of this news/decision, with the side note that the short-term lower pay would be worth it because of the high temp-to-perm conversion rate (and they were right, as I'm now working there full-time in a permanent position).

    Interview

    Extensive interview for an hourly intern position. Interviewed with 3 different employees and the entire process took 3+ hours. It seemed overly thorough for the role I was applying for, especially since it was my first time interviewing at a company.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at SAGE Publishing (Los Angeles, CA (US)).

    Interview

    I didn't get an offer, but had a great experience. Everyone I interviewed with displayed extreme passion for what they do. The interview process was kind of long. It started with a couple phone interviews followed by two Skype interviews. Finally they flew me out to Los Angeles for several 1:1 interviews as well as one group interview.

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at SAGE Publishing.

    Interview

    Ridiculously long interview process for the role (over 2 months and 6 interviews). First phone interview with HR, then face to face to with HR, then face to face with another EA, then Skype interview with a 2nd EA, then a face to face with the COO, then an interview lunch with 3 EAs.

    Interview Questions

    • Not a question, but was told not to expect this position to ever evolve into something else or be able to transfer to another department as they wont do it since the position comes into contact with alot of highly confidential information (what Admin or EA position doesnt?)   3 Answers

    Negotiation

    Read the comments, horrible experience!!!!
