    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at About (New York, NY).

    Interview

    An HR rep reached out, then an interview with the Account Manager on the phone, then a interview in person with 3 other members of the team. Took forever to choose an Account Coordinator for a entry level role that didn't require much. Most companies need to learn that most people are not staying in a entry level for an eternity, a year tops. You guys will have to do the process within a year don't take so long to choose someone for a entry level role that pays crap.
