    Communications Specialist Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Tate & Lyle (Hoffman Estates, IL) in March 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online and contacted the HR person directly on LinkedIn to request an interview. Had a phone interview with the HR guy, which seemed fruitful because he invited me in for an interview the following week and offered to give me a tour of the company. I never heard back from him to schedule it, however. I called him to follow up and he told me he'd call me in a few days to confirm a date for the in-person interview. When days passed with no call, I called again and left a voice mail. Also followed up via email, but it was radio silence. Why tell a job candidate you're interested if you're going to blow them off entirely? I found this experience to be incredibly rude and unprofessional. This guy gives HR people a bad rep.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Tate & Lyle (Loudon, TN) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Mostly technical about experience. Lots of back to back interviews. Everyone kept asking if I had any questions. I had a pretty good list of questions, but by the time I left I was "questioned out". Everyone was very nice and wanting to make it a welcoming environment. It seemed like a really good place to work.
