    Mio Analyst Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Bloomingdale's.

    Interview

    There was no interview. I was contacted via email about setting up a phone interview and then the next day I was informed that the position had been filled already. If you are in the final stages of hiring a candidate, why ask someone else for an interview? I would have thought a company like Bloomingdales would have a slightly higher standard for their hiring procedures.
