    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at GlaxoSmithKline in September 2016.

    Interview

    I had a first round interview with HR. This was a behavioral interview. I received the interview invite a couple of weeks after applying. The HR even graciously postponed the interview by one week on my request. I did not hear of the outcome of the interview for 2 weeks and then wrote to the HR to enquire. Then on the same day I received an automated response that I had not progressed to the next round. Now I have no issues at all with the reject however a large corporation should have a basic courtesy to atleast send a personal email to the interviewee rather than a bland automated response. I don't think it is too much to ask for some basic courtesy when someone has invested time preparing and appearing for the interview. I will not be applying for another role for GSK ever again.
