    Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in McLean, VA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Acumen Solutions (McLean, VA) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Telephone interview. Expected call at the top of the hour, no call. At a quarter past the hour contacted them, no answer, left voicemail and then sent email. Response to email was short, curt, and unprofessional "Sorry, been busy.". Finally got the call at 20 minutes late. Unprofessional interview, offensive comments made by interviewer. First time I have ever had an interview of this type where blatant disrespect and lack of professionalism were directed towards me as the interviewee. I was grilled with blunt questions, not really told anything about the position or company. I wouldn't accept an offer even if I received it regardless of the compensation package because if this is any indication of the company, I'm staying far far far away! Recommendations - provide your recruiting staff some training on professionalism and proper communication.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Stressful and frustrating because they hadn't clearly defined the role and level. Acumen hires for a certain success profile, and now that I'm here, I understand and appreciate it, but at the time I perceived them to be slightly disorganized and indecisive. Applicants should be comfortable with ambiguity and interested in not being hired for a specific well-defined role. If you want to have options and make opportunities for yourself, you can do that here. If you like structure, or want to do the same thing everyday, don't apply.
