Account Manager Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
No Offer
Negative Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied in-person. I interviewed at Thermo Fisher Scientific (New York, NY) in October 2017.

Interview

Was told the job was no longer available, then why was the appointment not cancelled? Do not appreciate the wasting of my time. Also did not appreciate the personal nature of the questioning. Current Management is a lawsuit waiting to happen

    Account Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Thermo Fisher Scientific (Winnipeg, MB (Canada)) in July 2013.

    Interview

    I was interviewed by HR as initial screening. It went well, and on to next stage which was the hiring manager as well as his manager. It went almost 2 hours in length. I was told would hear back within week and a half to two weeks. 2 weeks passed and I sent an email to HR - no response after a week. Then I sent a follow up email to hiring manager - no response. Now its been over 2 months and never heard a peep out of anyone. Another week passed and noticed a local recruiter is trying to recruit new candidates.
    I have been working and interviewing for 20 years and never have been treated so rudely! All it takes is a quick email saying they found a more qualified candidate. No big deal! Why leave candidates hanging? Totally turned off by this companies hiring practices. Think twice about them. As their hiring/interview practices are so poor I would seriously wonder what the corporate culture and management style is like.

    Interview Questions

    • the second interview consisted of a 90 minute resume review with asking for former manager names and what they would say about my strengths and weaknesses. Not fun as would much prefer behavioral questions.   Answer Question
