- No OfferNegative ExperienceAverage Interview
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at Gunlocke (Wayland, NY) in May 2010.
I was contacted after applying for a job posted online via phone initally. I later exchanged several emails with the HR manager about conducting a phone interview. I was then asked to schedule a face to face interview which was conducted on site at Gunlocke in Wayland, NY. I arrived expecting to interview at 10:15am, but was brought in 45 min early to fill out paperwork and meet with the HR manager. Then at 11am I went in for the official interview. I met with the senior design manager and senior sales manager. I presented a portfolio and resumes. I was asked the typical interview questions. I felt it went well. They seemed to like me. I said thank you, shook hands and left. I then wrote thank you emails to the 3 people I had interviewed with. I didn't hear anything for a week so I called the HR manager to see what my standing was. She said they were still interviewing, but promised to get back to me in 2 weeks time. I heard nothing. I then emailed the sr design manager to check in and inquire about the position. She said they were still interviewing and promised I would be contacted. At no point did anyone contact me after a face to face interview. Only after 3 months did I receive a form email from HR saying the position had been filled. In my personal opinion they gave me the run around and treated me like dirt after the effort I put into my interview. (new suit, new portfolio, and new resume) I would never recommend this company or work with them. BEWARE.
