    Program Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Garden Grove, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at GKN (Garden Grove, CA).

    Interview

    I applied and was called within 2 weeks for an interview. I came in and had a positive interview and was told I would hear back from the Program Director. I followed up with HR Manager and Hiring Director and they said they have a few more interviews to go but would make a decision soon because the position needed to be filled ASAP. I was called to weeks later for a follow up interview with someone else and that interview seem to be positive as well. I was told I would hear back soon but it has been two months and still no response. The position has not been filled when I spoke to the HR manager on the phone but when I followed up via email I did not receive any response. I'm confused, they told me I would be a good fit for the company but did not offer me a job nor did they send me a rejection letter. I am a little bit disappointed that the follow through after the interview has been a little bit slow or non existence altogether on their end.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at GKN (Cromwell, CT) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Received a call from HR for some pre-screening questions. Got a call the same day for an on site interview. Went for the interview, very welcoming environment and seemed close knit. After HR interview (20 min) I interviewed with the hiring manager for Manufacturing. Extremely nice, even took me for a tour of the environment I'd be working in and explained the job in detail. Nothing but good vibes, just not the salary I was looking for unfortunately.
