    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Owens Corning (Fairburn, GA) in May 2019.

    Interview

    It started out as a very fast, organized, detailed, accommodating and effective interview process but hiring manager did not provide a compensation near the range agreed upon at the beginning of the process. Aside from a very smooth and thorough interview process, this was very disheartening and the managers involved refused to try and resolve the issue. Hence why I had decided not to pursue the offer.
