    The interview never happened. I was contacted by a recruiter for the company to set up an interview. I responded to the recruiter and didn't hear back for a few days. I sent a few follow ups and received an apology for lack of response because of being busy. We set a meeting for a few days later and she never called.
    Definitely not worth your time.

    Customer Relationship Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Nuance in May 2017.

    Interview

    The recruiter was extremely unpleasant, conceited, and short. I had to ask twice to discuss the position details and twice was given a very generic, 2 liner responses. By the end of the interview, I still knew nothing about the job. I was trying to tell her as much as I could about myself to somehow make it through to the second round, but it seems like I was doomed from the beginning. It is frustrating even to get to the interview point with the recruiter and spend time to prepare just to be met with hostility. I was told that i would be contacted in a few days with some updates. It's been about a month. Needless to say, I am not holding my breath.
