    Flexible hours, so long as work gets done, I can come and go as I please


    Lack of communication and vision post merger. Not much clarity on how our support role will change going forward

    Senior Account Executive Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at SGK (Chicago, IL) in May 2014.


    I applied for the job via their website on a Thursday. The following Wednesday, I received an email from HR reaching out to schedule a phone interview. We scheduled 30 minutes to chat the next day. The call lasted only 20 minutes, and we had already decided to schedule an in-person interview with the hiring manager. Later that evening, I received an email with the full schedule list of the 4 different people I'd be meeting with and the date and time. 1 week later, 2 hours total, 30min each with each person. The next Thursday, I met with the hiring manager (Account Director), another Sr. AE, an ACD, and an AE. The next morning, I had an email from HR following up on the interview, and an offer was extended via email that day.

    Reasons for Declining

    I didn't decline the offer. They withdrew their offer 2 days later, telling me they had "restructured the department" and could no longer offer me the job. Though there was no mention of a timeline, I was told the offer expired and was contingent on a drug screen, background check, credit check, etc. None of which I took, nor was told I needed to take. I had a couple follow up questions/negotiation-type responses, and instead of answering or responding to any of them, they took the offer off the table completely.
