The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Catalina Marketing.
I first interviewed with an HR rep, then the department head who would be my direct supervisor on the phone, and then came in for an in-person interview with 7 or 8 people. I was given a verbal indication that I was hired, but then waited for a while and upon prompting, was told by the HR rep that they decided instead to promote someone internally, and that it was one of the people that I had met and would have supervised. It was really disappointing, and seemed unprofessional. Wouldn't the first thing to consider be an internal promotion, before the whole rigamarole with a background check and outside interviews? A few weeks later I was offered a similar role. I passed. The interview and previous near-offer made me feel uncomfortable with the leadership, decision-making process and general direction. I think promoting from within is always best but in this case it was done oddly - after a somewhat long interview queue of outside candidates, and having met the person that was promoted, it seemed a very poor choice. It was obviously too senior a position and completely outside the person's experience and expertise - it was a completely different field. It seemed a cost saving measure rather than a real thought-out hiring choice and set up the employee for a very clear impending failure. And I wasn't notified of the decision and was left to wait for a written offer for way too long. The experience left me annoyed and frustrated for having wasted my time when there wasn't really a job there for a person of my experience and background (and salary requirements, although they were discussed upfront). When I did get an offer, I didn't feel confident that I would have a long term future there so didn't move forward.
