    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 7 weeks. I interviewed at Watco Companies (Houston, TX) in October 2016.

    Interview

    The recruiter Kylie was wonderful. She setup at least 4 interviews with the same company, Each time she was professional and very polite.The problem is that they didn't have any idea of what they are doing. Wasted several weeks and ultimately left me in the cold about the process. The ladies got drunk at a meeting and it was very unprofessional.

    Revenue Account Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 7 weeks. I interviewed at Watco Companies in October 2014.

    Interview

    I applied online and received a call back 7 weeks later. I was at work when I got the call so I scheduled the phone interview later that afternoon during my lunch break at 1 pm. The interviewer called at 1:07 pm

    It was explained to me that they were slow to respond because of someone being on maternity leave. They asked if I was still interested in the position. I told them that I had already been hired, so it would depend on the salary being offered. I was informed that the position was an entry level position and they were offering $32,000. As this was less than what I was making I informed them that I was not interested and thanked them for the opportunity.

    Note to Management: Since there is no room for negotiations in your salaries, might I suggest that you include the salary information in your job posting. It would save your people and those looking for employment time and effort.
