    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Rust-Oleum.

    Interview Details

    Applied online for a position over a month ago. Eventually received an email from a HR personal requesting a day/time to conduct a call to discuss the opportunity. Replied to HR personal fairly fast and proposed several day/time options, but never heard back.

    After about a week replied to HR personal’s original email again following up. A day later, the HR personal replies stating that she is overwhelmed with work and she forgot to reply back to my response.

    Replied to HR personal withdrawing my application. Based on what other people have posted on GD and the way HR personal responded, I felt the organization is an absolute mess.
