    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Dow Jones (Princeton, NJ).

    Interview

    This was third time I was asked to come in for an interview. Met with two professionals, standard interview questions. Then took 90 minute research test. Then silence, three times I was told position was put on hold. Very unprofessional way to conduct hiring. I don’t understand what they were trying to accomplish. I was asked back the second time because I interviewed so highly according to HR professional.

    Marketing Associate Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Dow Jones (New York, NY) in September 2017.

    Interview

    Initially, I had a positive interview process. I was contacted by a recruiter a couple weeks after I applied to the position online. I had an initial screening interview with the recruiter & he forwarded my information over to the actual team that I was applying for. After about a week & a half, he told me that the team was interested in meeting with me in person. I met in person with two members of the team on a Monday & the interview went well. I was then contacted again by the recruiter the next day & he informed me that they wanted me to come back in the office on that Friday. I came in & met with the director and another associate on the team. This interview was a bit longer & in-depth. They asked more skill/personality-based questions. I sent a thank you e-mail to the recruiter and the director after meeting with them (as I had throughout the entire process) & never received any type of response or feedback. It is now almost two months later & I am at a new job, but I think it's very rude and unprofessional to meet someone in person multiple times and not even let them know whether or not they got the position --- especially because their communication with me was initially consistent.
