    Project Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Interview

    Standard process: phone screens with HR then the Hiring Manager, followed by a final-round in-person with four people. The process itself was fine but they ghosted me after the last interview. If someone is taking the time to prepare for you and come in, taking the time to thank the company, it is unacceptable for the company to not get back to a person with the outcome. Ideally they would email all final-round candidates, as a courtesy, but at the very least respond to those that send a follow-up. Don't bother being nice at the beginning if you can't follow through to the end with that same courtesy. Very rude and unprofessional HR people here in the Watertown corporate office. I expect ghosting behaviour from an adolescent, not from a company who claims to have respect as a core value.

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Bright Horizons Family Solutions.

    Interview

    2 phone interviews. It was pretty straightforward. The first one was a briefly introduction to the company and as the interviewer went through the resume, she asked several simple questions. The second one was more detailed, my supervisor asked several behavior questions, and also asked about my experiences.
