    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Oxford University Press in August 2012.

    Interview

    OUP always has a two-step interview process - the first is more general, often with the hiring manager - and the second will likely involve a task relating to the job role in question.

    After getting hired and now being on the 'other side' of a recruitment process, it is clear that there are no standard interview questions - the hiring manager is expected to come up with questions and tasks each time. this means you may get mostly general questions, or you might get more 'behavioural' style - it is different each time.

    Interview Questions

    • A classic question with no right answer - Which do you think is the most important - Timeliness, Quality or Cost?   1 Answer
