    Accounts Payable Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Nexstar Media Group.

    Interview

    Can’t respect a company that doesn’t even have the decency to tell you if you didn’t get the job after 2 interviews. I made it to the second round of interviews and was told that they weren’t the type of company to leave you wondering if you got the job or not. Weeks passed and I never heard anything back from them.
