- Accepted OfferPositive ExperienceDifficult Interview
I applied online. The process took 2+ months – interviewed at Sotheby's (New York, NY).
Long and tedious. The HR contact was friendly and responsive. However, the department that I was interviewing with had a few internal changes during the same time that I was interviewing, therefore the process took much longer than expected. During the first interview, I had to take a writing test and a math test, which I later found out that no one from my division had to take them. The second round, I met with the department manager, as well as the business manager, both of whom were extremely professional. Overall, the process took almost two months but the people were nice enough. At the end of the process, the company made an offer, which I took. However, after many years, I slowly realized the company is awful with promoting from within (though apparently it was good at this at some point...before the company became publicly traded). Eventually I was annoyed enough and bored enough to go else where.
