The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at Allen Communication.
Front desk lady called and we eventually worked out a time for me to come. It starts out with basically a grammar test on a computer in a little room with a glass wall. I think I aced it but they say you never get to find out your results :)
So then I get put in a little conference room and an HR guy comes in. He starts out with, "so what questions do you have?" That really irked me. I don't know if that's some silly new tactic or if he was just lazy, but it was annoying. He asked what I already knew about Allen, and I can't really remember what else. He was reading and responding to texts during the interview and even took a phone call once. He kept talking about how busy he was. Overall that guy bugged.
Then I was sent to who would be my manager. The lady was leaning back and seemed like she hated doing this interview. Then suddenly she perked up and was really interested.
A few days later I came back for the last part. They sent me a scenario and I was role playing my position, with a panel of interviewers as my 'clients.' It went alright, and those people were nice and professional and knowledgeable. Afterward the lady asked me how I thought it went and offered me the job. I got this funny vibe from her, maybe because previously she was so standoffish, that her friendliness was forced.
Reasons for Declining
They told me that most people work 50-60 hours per week and that would basically be expected of me. Benefits weren't great either. Just alright.
