- Declined OfferNegative ExperienceEasy Interview
I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Carol H. Williams Advertising in October 2011.
Initially did two phone interviews. Two weeks later they flew me to Chicago for a series of interviews ( 5 of them). Complete Chaos. They booked my flight to 30 mins before first interview. 5 interviews were one after the other. No break inbetween, no lunch nothing. They had also booked return flight for 60 mins after final interview. Very very unorganized, they even emailed the itinary of the other other candidate by accident. (oups).Interview questions were pretty standard.
- Standard Interview question. Tell me about yourself.... Answer Question
Reasons for Declining
During negotiation process they really showed how unorganized they are. Took them 10 days to send me an initial offer, after they had told me I was there primary candidate. I have seen better contracts written by freshman business students. Counter offer took another 7 days. The salary they offered was really really low for a managerial position. Bonus structure non existant. (company disrection.. yeah right)
