    I have been working at Synectics full-time (more than 10 years)


    if you are a consultant with the hunter/killer mentality then this is the best fit...


    Partnership--the right people aren't making the right decisions.

    Web Content Specialist (Contracter) Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Milwaukee, WI

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Synectics in September 2011.

    Interview Details

    Responded to contract job opportunity through Synectics for a Web Content Specialist.

    Unprofessional approach from the start. E-mail contacting me contained spelling mistakes. Telephone interviewer seemed unclear as to exact role of job, and failed to understand basic terminology involved.

    I was even (accidentally?) sent a misspelt internal e-mail after my telephone interview asking for advice from other staff members.

    A very negative experience. A shame, as I'm sure the actual contracted job would have been fine.

    Go with other agencies if you want more than a junior school level of professionalism and spelling.
