    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Wiley.

    Interview

    Multiple interviews but when I did my fourth interview in office, they seemed to think I was doing a round 2 interview. Employees seemed anxious and uncomfortable. I was called for a group interview but met with only peers doing the job initially. I was prepared to answer questions, but didn't expect to ask all the questions.

    Assistant Marketing Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Medford, MA (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Wiley (Medford, MA (US)) in July 2018.

    Interview

    I received an email from a recruiter based in the UK and we set up a phone interview. She went over my basic qualifications and said she would be reaching out to me soon to set up a meeting with the Hiring manager who was based in Medford, MA. I received an email from her within 24 hours asking me if I was available the next day for the second round interview. I asked for some alternative times/dates the next week since it was already Thursday and I had work commitments scheduled. I never heard back from her after that which was unprofessional and left me cold.

    Web Designer/Developer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Orlando, FL (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Wiley (Orlando, FL (US)) in January 2011.

    Interview

    The interview process was almost five years ago and was probably the most involved process I had ever been a part of before. At the time the company was much smaller (400 employees) and I remember coming back on three different occasions to meet with several people individually. They use this peer approach where each person asks a series of questions of their own choice. It was a long process, but after I was hired I felt that because of the process I must be worth the time, and that was a good feeling.

    IT Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Hoboken, NJ (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Wiley (Hoboken, NJ (US)) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Two phone screens a month apart. Then, two half-day back-to-back interview process with 10 people. You could sense that it was a dog and pony show to support an internal candidate. During my 4:15 slot with two interviewers, one of them packed up his stuff and left...10 min into the 30 min process. That person said, "Oop, it's now 4:25, it's time for me to leave."

    Another interviewer started the interview by attempting to lecture me. The first thing he said was "Just to let you know..." Then he proceeded to use the remaining time to try to dig himself out of the hole. For the record, I am female and all but one interviewers are male. Most of them are condescending and did not take the interviews seriously. You could feel that they were there to make sure that the internal candidate got the job. One interviewer said he was concerned an external candidate would not have a good understanding of their IT environment. Wow, really?!?
