People are funny - not a lot of responsibility assigned to the receptionist
People are not happy with the employer. More should be done to address this.

I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at National Biochemicals Corp.
I had a resume posted online and they contacted me by email. The email asked me to call them to discuss the position. I called and was transferred to the president of the company who had no real idea of who I was or why I was calling. He asked questions about my experience and then said he wanted me to come in for an interview. I scheduled an interview. When I arrived I was surprised to see the very young receptionist was the one doing most of the interview. She told me I had to take a few tests before the president would come in to speak with me. She gave me a math test that included basic addition and subtraction questions but there were also questions that were not written using proper grammar or sentence structure. This was a times test! Next came a Wonderlic test, yes the good old Wonderlic of the 1970's. This is a 50 question test about critical thinking and you are given 12 minutes to complete it. This type of test is not only uninformative but has been phased out due to its bias results. After completion of the tests I was told the president would be in shortly to speak with me. I waited 30 minutes before he finally came in. He only asked questions regarding my experience. He asked the same questions multiple times as if he did not understand my answers or maybe he just did not know what to ask. I was there for almost 2 hours. A few days later he called to schedule a second interview.
- The most difficult question was on the math test and it was about the gross margin on some product. Partial information is given in the question in the form of pricing for the product but you have to calculate the selling price and the purchasing price for a different unit. Answer Question
