    Bad HR, makes you wonder how are these people supposed to have people skills!
    -Contacted by an HR through a common connection and was told my profile "is a peft match for the role" and that we should have a phone call.
    -I follow up, no answer. I follow up again, and again, and again. After three weeks, HR returns to me saying they decided my background is "a bit off" without an apology

    Senior Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Philadelphia, PA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at NRG Energy (Philadelphia, PA) in September 2016.

    Interview

    2 interviews with HR over the phone and then 6 back to back interviews lasting over 3 hours. As for getting feedback? Forget it. HR went completely missing in action for nearly a month. After several calls and emails asking for an update, I finally received a FORM LETTER saying my skills were not a match for the position. What a complete and utter display of incompetence and professionalism. I am received the company showed it's true colors before I may have accepted a position I would have most certainly regretted.

    Director of Business Operations Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Interview

    For some reason, we skipped the HR screening interview and went straight to the hiring authority. Basic interview questions. Lead interviewer was low-energy and seemed pressed for time, which seemed strange given that this was a director-level position. It didn't go any further, which was a relief. I don't think I could have lived in Houston.
