    Reasons for Declining

    Higher management is strict and unbalanced. I would recommend to join another sales division such as their lab side. Better yet, don't apply here.

    Director Key Accounts Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Essilor in June 2015.

    Interview

    Recruiter called, left a message, I tried to call back and did not reach her. I tried for a week before she finally called me again. When we spoke, she told me I was under qualified and to look at the position for the next level down. By the way, she was "outside, because it was such a nice day". There was too much noise in the background. I have never had a recruiter do that and found it unprofessional. After she told me I was unqualified it made me wonder why they called if they already knew that. I looked at the position for the next level down and called her back as she had requested. I emailed her too to follow up as she had requested. After 5 weeks I still never heard back from her. I received 3 rejection letters from Essilor as well. It's insulting and unprofessional. Even more disappointing as my current company does business with this lab. We will be switching labs very soon as a result of this poor treatment, and it's too bad because we are a large account for Essilor.
