    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Smith & Nephew.

    Interview

    Interview was set up a week after a campus career fair. The interview was over the phone and lasted approximately 30 minutes. She gave me a rundown at the start of what we were going to cover. It was more professional than most phone interviews I've been a part of. I was told I would hear back within 2 weeks about the final rounds, and that has not been the case.

    Senior Director of Trade Compliance Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Memphis, TN

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Smith & Nephew (Memphis, TN) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Very disorganized and disrespectful process. On-site interview was rescheduled 3 times (I'm in MI, they are in TN, so no easy task to get there). While I was there, interview times were moved and my time was not respected. One guy was actually on his cell phone while speaking with me and walking out the door. Every interviewer was, at least, 20 minutes late for their meetings with me, including phone interviews (one guy was an hour late). They put me up in a flea bag hotel and, initially, wanted me to fly home in the middle of the night. And then, to top it off, they delayed the process of reimbursing me for my expenses (I had to pay for hotel, car and meals out of pocket). Don't interview with this company!!!
