The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at UGL Services in January 2011.
Interview Details – Sent e-mail to HR. Interviewed approximately 4 weeks later. I was told by the interviewer / hiring manager that I (and 4 others) had been shortlisted from over 100 candidates. Interview went very well as the hiring manager and I had previously worked for the same company (different states - didn't know each other) and I felt there was a common respect for our work experience with that company. I demonstrated a thorough knowledge of the position with very positive feedback from hiring manager. Leaving the interview I felt I would definitely get an offer. The hiring manager never responded to me despite sending a thank you e-mail, 2 subsequent status request e-mails, a voicemail on the hiring manager's direct line and cell phone. I understand not responding to everyone who submits a resume, and maybe even not responding to everyone who is actually interviewed. But if someone who has been shortlisted and personally interviewed is persistent and tries to follow-up for a status 4 times over 4 weeks, I think a response is warranted. How hard is it to respond to an e-mail and say "We went with somebody else, good luck."? No response at all is extremely unprofessional for such a large, global organization. They need to teach their employees some basic HR interview etiquette.
