Interview Details –
I was contacted by the very professional in-house talent recruiter that saw my resume on a well known job board. I went through an initial screening. Prior to the hiring manager interview I was informed that an assessment "exam" would be required and I should not spend more than a predetermined amount of time to complete it. I succeeded in "passing" this additional level of screening and was then set up for a panel interview via phone. The interview consisted of several behavioral and experience-related questions presented by each participant and lasted approximately 1 hour. The experience was comfortable and I felt the interview was very successful. I did my due diligence and sent personal thank you notes to each person I spoke with. I followed up with the recruiter to summarize the interview and was informed that prior to the next interview phase, another "assessment" would be given and I would be contacted after all the candidates were interviewed.
At this point the experience took a nose dive, and I was not contacted for several weeks regarding the possibility for the final 1-on-1. I made several attemps to follow up with the recruiter and received no reply during that time. Soon thereafter, I received a standard turndown in the form of an email.

Interview Details –
First interview: phone with recruiter
Second interview: group/panel - everyone was polite, but I felt they continued to repeat the same questions with different verbiage (behavioral questions and what if scenarios)
Third interview: 1:1 with hiring manager – somewhat standoffish and didn’t ask a lot of questions. She seemed as though she was preoccupied. I was told that I would hear something from her team within 2 weeks, but I never heard anything. I had to contact the recruiter at least 3 times before getting a response. When he finally responded, he stated that they decided to give the position to someone within the team as a promotable position.

I applied online. I was called the next day. There was a lot of phone and email correspondence. I had to take a timed test online and submit a drug test, then I went in for an interviiew. The man I interviewed with didn't seem very together and could not answer all my questions, like dress code, he told me to look around and see what everyone else was wearing....
Kind of weird! That should of been my first clue!
Very complicated interview process and very time consuming, not worth it at all!
