    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at PEP.

    Interview Details

    Initial confirmation received by e-mail of "Good News", I have been scheduled by the Hiring Manager for a preliminary phone screening interview. They were late in placing their call to me, the questions were all behavioral in nature and there was not alot of information given about the role or the Company. It seemed as though I ended up doing the interview. It sounds as though they are a Company of cheerleaders and routine. Biggest client is P&G and their bread and butter. They appear to be threatened by candidates that have significant experience and those that are comfortable in an interview. As a suggestion PEP, please don't send a rookie to interview a veteran. And instead of having your HR people ask questions from a script (which was very obvious), educate them and train them on how to conduct an interview through probing conversation. I felt like I was interviewing with an automated system.
