    Counsel Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  New York, NY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at Viacom in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted over email by a recruiter to come in for an interview for a counsel position that I applied to. The recruiter and I corresponded over email a number of times and I interviewed with the hiring manager (within legal) a couple weeks later. After the interview, I never received a response from the recruiter or the hiring manager, even though I followed up via email multiple times. I continued to apply for similar positions, as they became available, and the recruiter never responded. I think it is very discourteous and unprofessional that not respond to candidate inquiries or send follow up correspondence to unsuccessful applicants. I will NOT be applying to Viacom again.
