    Interview

    I had a short telephone interview with an lower level associate. It was just to give me some more information and to see if I would be a good fit. She said she would pass me along to a higher level attorney to see if he wanted to do another interview. However, he did not.

    Clerical Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Calamos Investments (Chicago, IL) in August 2016.

    Interview

    I was contacted to speak about a position. The first phone interview led to a very clear appointment of a second phone interview the next day. This was not tentative; it was a clear agreement that I would receive a call to talk further at a specifically set time. I sent a polite reminder email after waiting 45 minutes. Still no response 2 days later.

    There is no excuse for not following up (in any manner) after reaching out, scheduling an appointment, and wasting my time.

    The comments on GlassDoor are consistent and paired with my own personal and online research have led me to believe this is not a forward thinking environment or a desirable workplace.

    Applied online. They contacted me about a month later to schedule an in person interview.

    Horrible. Manager was unprofessional and on his high horse. I'm glad it didn't work out because I couldn't see myself working there every day all day. HR process was fine and seemed to go smooth.
