    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at AOL (New York, NY).

    Really fast interview process. I was asked to participate in a phone interview about a week after I submitted the application, and then was invited for an in-person interview about a week later.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at AOL.

    Interview

    Was really straightforward and simple. The first was a phone call from HR, and they asked about me, what I know about the company, my experiences and activities. It was like going over my resume, but expanding on it. It was then passed on to the hiring manager to set up an in-person interview. For my in-person interview, I was just asked about my experience, what I would do around celebrities, what questions I would ask as an audience member, and how to deal with the public. It was very straightforward and friendly.

    A recruiter reached out to me via e-mail asking for my availability, once I replied back, she never followed back up with me, so I sent her another e-mail and she randomly called me on a day that I was traveling so we had to schedule for a different day.

    Very unprofessional. I prepared for my interview a long time after an initial phone screen. I sat by the phone waiting for a call from the hiring manager. 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.
