    Finance/Accounting Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Harris.

    Interview

    Did brief phone screen and was quickly invited for an on-site interview. Interview conducted of the usual three rounds, pretty standard questions.

    However, the interview itself was an awful experience. The three managers I interviewed with were clearly new to the company and didn't appear to be interested in interviewing anybody. There was evidence of a lot of turnover in the department and they didn't even try to mitigate that fact. They gave no indication of the direction that the company or department was going into. Basically it gave me the impression that this would be a miserable place to work. Didn't even give me tour of the place despite spending my entire day trying to get here. I couldn't think of a single reason why I would actually want this job, other than the location.

    Building itself seems like its been lacking basic maintenance for decades. Walls and floors are stained, conference chairs and tables look to be decades old. They claim it's because its a leased building, but really its because they don't care to spend money on decent working conditions.

    The real kicker is when I inquired about their "unlimited vacation" policy. For those who are unaware this is basically a scheme now where companies advertise that you get "unlimited" vacation (...with manager approval...) but you do not get to bank any of those days or carry them over to the next year. They pretty much told me that vacation time requires very high levels of approval, not just your immediate manager. So basically your requests are going to get caught in Outlook for months until they are finally rejected. I directly asked how much vacation time I could expect to use in a given year, and was told that "Well, it's up to your manager and the business schedule, but you should understand that we are busy people." As if there wasn't already enough red flags....

    Ultimately it was a waste of a vacation day.
