    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Harte Hanks (Yardley, PA) in August 2011.

    Interview

    I had interviewed with this company three times previously. I sent my materials to HR for Freelance, but she hadn't forwarded them to the hiring manager (Chief Creative). SNAFU. I didn't get a call/email back.

    About a month previously, another hiring manager tasked me with a "simple" test. It was complex and it took hours to complete.

    Interview

    General line of questioning on areas pertaining to the role. All interviews went well, then..............silence. Appears like they do not have the cultural capacity to let you know when they decide not to progress further.
