    Flexible working hours, large company with many resources available.

    Take mental health more seriously and value your employees more.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Oxford University Press (Oxford, England).

    Interview

    The interviewers were incredibly pleasant and did their best to put me at ease. I had to do an editorial skills test before the interview - there wasn't really enough time to carry out all the tasks they requested. Perhaps it was really a handling pressure test?! The interview itself was thorough and lasted quite a long time. Although I didn't get the role, they supplied positive feedback, which was helpful.
