    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Progressive Business Publications.

    Interview

    Was contacted via email after I applied. HR person asked a few questions and then asked me to come in for an in person interview. First part was a meeting with HR then I took a test that they provided. I then met with two team members who I would be working with directly. About halfway through the interview with them I realized that this was not the job I applied for. The HR person did not tell me before hand and I was not correctly prepared for this interview. Very unprofessional and I feel as though I was set up for failure and didn't have a fair chance at the job right out of the gate. The least she could have done was told me "hey I know you applied for this job but I think you would be a fit for this one as well" so I could at least prepare properly. Disappointing.
