I applied through other source – interviewed at Beats Electronics.Interview Details
I was contacted by Beats about a Director role within the Marketing dept. and had an immediate interview with an HR rep. I then was told I'd be interviewing with a peer on the team the following week. A month went by, with little to no communication from HR about the interview. First bad sign. Finally, after more than a month with no communication, I received an email from the HR rep that I'd be having a phone interview with the peer. Interview went well and the peer was highly intelligent and motivated. I was told the next steps would be an in-person interview with the hiring manager and team. I never received any feedback from the HR rep about my phone interview, even after I tried reaching out multiple times over the course of the following month. After two months had gone by without any communication or response(I had thought I didn't get the job), i mysteriously received an email from the HR rep wanting to schedule an in-person interview. I have to admit, I was so annoyed with the extremely unprofessional experience, that I contemplated declining the interview. I didn't want to work for a company that operated in that manner.
I eventuallly had the interview where I was given an hour to create a presentation from scratch based on a case study. I was to present my views and strategy to a team consisting of my hiring manager and three of his/her colleagues. After presenting I had individual interviews with three of the four VP/Directors. I felt things went well and I received a lot of praise.
This is where the professionalism stopped. It's now been four months since that interview and I have yet to receive a single response from the HR rep. I've sent numerous emails and even tried calling twice to get some mere feedback and I've heard nothing. At this point, all I care to know is how I did on the presentation for future interviews. Because after this terrible experience, I've lost any respect for their HR process. I've read other reviews about their hiring process and they seem to echo my sentiments. It's just disrespectful to the talent you're hiring and inconsiderate to the their time spent preparing. Let alone the interviewee putting other opportunities on hold, waiting for a response that you stated would be coming.
Again, highly intelligent and motivated team, but I had the worst interview process in my 17-year career. The company should take a hard look at their people and process and put a little more thought into how you treat people.Interview Questions
