    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at George P. Johnson (Torrance, CA) in February 2014.

    Interview

    Introduced by a recruiter, interview was arranged quickly and seamlessly. The company seems locked up and very professional. Affable and respectful culture. Interviewer was very busy, it seemed like he had very little time for the interview. Very direct, no time was wasted. Seems like a fast paced environment.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at George P. Johnson (Torrance, CA).

    Interview

    Initially contacted by recruiter. Round 1 included a phone conversation with the recruiter which was very pleasant and informative. Round 2 was a one-on-one with the direct manager for the position. We established great rapport and had an engaging discussion about the position and my qualifications. I was immediately contacted after the second round to schedule a Round 3 with another member of upper management. Again, established great rapport and received very positive feedback from the recruiter. The member of upper management did ask for me to return to present with the direct manager to see how we worked as a team.
    Long story short, I was then given less than 24 hours to return and present solo for 2 members of upper management. Fortunately, I had a presentation that I was able to update for the meeting the following day. The presentation went well, and we all had a very engaging discussion about the concept that I presented.
    Then, get a call from the recruiter stating that they were passing on me as a candidate with the feedback given by one member of upper management stating that I did not have enough industry experience.
    Overall, I feel as though a lot of my time was wasted. I don't believe I would have made it through 4 Rounds of interviewing if I wasn't qualified for the position.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at George P. Johnson (Torrance, CA).

    Interview

    I had a great first interview with this company. My second and third interview were a bit tougher but still went well. I was confident after my third interview that I was going to get an offer or at least a final interview. To my dismay, I never heard from them again. No email, no call, nothing. I was definitely disappointed. Overall, the interview process was good but after no contact after 3 interviews which took over a month in total, I'd have to say overall it was a negative experience. When you take so much time to apply and interview for a position that you truly want, a simple call or email would go a long way. I wouldn't discourage someone from applying for this company but perhaps the company should improve their follow up process.

    Interview

    I was contacted via email by an HR person for a phone screening, then had an in person interview with a panel of about 6 women. The woman who did the initial screening was very pleasant and personable. However, in the panel interview it felt like a sorority. Not at all as friendly.
