    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at SThree (Chicago, IL) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I received a phone call the same day that I submitted my resume. I was asked to set up a phone interview two days later and was told that a time would be sent to me via email. I never received an email upon the next day, so I called the company. After speaking to a new employee, I was informed that I was actually scheduled for an in-person interview. (One: Thanks for the heads up, two: if you want people to show up to interviews -- LET THEM KNOW!). I was told that I would be emailed some paperwork pre-interview after being informed of my in-person interview. I never received anything. Three hours before my scheduled interview, I called the company again. This time I spoke to the first women I had initially spoken to, who told me my email was not working for them. If it's not working, why wouldn't you call me to inform me? She told me she would send paperwork to me on LinkedIn immediately -- I never got anything. I went into the interview with notes of my own from the website, questions, a resume and everything I assumed to bring. The guy who interviewed me was nonstop grilling me and extremely rude. I informed him that I felt unprepared because of the chaos scheduling an interview and having the correct materials. Any time I answered a question, he scribbled stupid pictures on a piece of paper. One, do not invite a candidate in to act as a jerk to see how they react. It sends a very bad message on behalf of your company. Everyone should be welcoming because potentially, that person could end up working for you and will always remember you as "that guy." I would never commit to a company as unorganized as this and feel bad for anyone that would. It was a complete waste of my time and I have too positive of an attitude to be around negative energies.
