    Interview

    Applied through their website and was e-mailed by Jessica Sisco with their HR department to schedule a phone interview. On the day of our interview, we spoke for about 15 minutes about the job and my experience. She seemed excited and said she would pass my information along to one of their directors in the Kansas City office, but a week later, she sent another e-mail saying they would pursue other candidates.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Osborn & Barr (Saint Louis, MO) in June 2012.

    Interview

    I applied for an account manager position Summer 2012. It took about two months for someone to get back to me after I initially emailed. They said I was a match for several positions and brought me in for a full day of interviews - speaking with three different teams for two associate positions and one manager role. The interviews were scattered. My interviewers seemed unprepared and unengaged. They were hard to read. They asked mostly basic questions - tell me about yourself, your experience, what do you know about the company, etc. Make sure you know lots about the company and the clients (mainly USB and Monsanto). I applied for a manager job and was offered an associate role. They promised I could have a review in six months, as they anticipated "the perfect manager role" would be coming available for me about them. Not true. Never got the review. Packed up and left after a year of empty promises.

    Negotiation

    Negotiating was rough. I interviewed for a manager job and they offered me an associate role. I was confused, but they said they anticipated a manager level job opening on a particular team that I'd be great for. I asked that it be written in my offer that I could be reviewed after six months and they said "of course" but never did.
