When no one called, I messaged the recruiting coordinator, and she said the position had been canceled last week. No one bothered to mention it to me. I would have appreciated just a simple email.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at AOL.

    Interview

    I submitted my resume through LinkedIn. The director contacted me and had a weird foggy discussion about the position. I went to the interview because a couple of friends persuaded me to do
    so.
    I met with 4 people in total, the first 3 were delightful to talk to the last person was of course the obnoxious director. He asked me to wait for over 40 min because he got stuck in a meeting. Afterwards he's walking around the office like an idiot. Then when we finally get to talk it was a total of 5 min. Who does that ? Complete waste of time. No wonder they got acquired
