    Marketing Interview

    Negative Experience

    Application

    The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Autism Speaks.

    Interview

    Had three very, very lengthy interviews, one in person. Spent countless hours preparing. Sent follow up email after being told I’d be notified of next steps after the last interview. No response. Nothing. For a charity that’s supposed to make people feel better, I felt lousy and thought this was extremely unprofessional. Heard this is common behavior for this organization.
