    Neutral Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at PolyOne (Romeoville, IL) in March 2018.

    Interview

    I meet with the entire management staff and they were impressed by my skill set. I get the opportunity to meet with the director and he seemed more interested in someone who would fit in with their social life. He actually said the 2nd interview would probably be at a bar. It sounds great but what does that have to do with my ability to do the job. The entire interview process took a month. How do you grow your sales if you wont hire sales people? Don't accept an interview if you need a job asap.
