    Executive Management Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Pharm-Olam International (Houston, TX) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Phone Interview Only - I was hesitant to pursue given the bad reviews. The phone interview was less than friendly. The interviewer seemed unaware of the overall poor reviews and, when mentioned, seemed a bit defensive. A few exchanges lead me to believe that the reviews might be fairly accurate. It's a shame as it is in a growth mode that it might not be prepared to capitalize.
