    Sanitary Market Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Advanced Drainage Systems in May 2016.


    Submitted my resume in the morning and a recruiter (cooperating with the company) called me in the afternoon to schedule an interview for the next day. He called the following day to inform me that the position was covered internally!!! A week later a similar position was posted to ADS's website. This time I reached out to the same recruiter. He wrote back "bla week I have a meeting with the hiring manager and I will make sure to mention your name and resume. Feel free to follow up with me at any time". I thanked him and followed up after a week as I have mentioned. He never replied. Sent a 2nd email a week later...never replied.....Called 3 weeks later....never picked up...never replied to the voice mail. This makes you wonder what kind of a person says follow up with me at any time and has no courtesy or professionalism to reply after a month. Also, what kind of a company accepts such behaviors from the recruiting company they cooperate with. By the way my qualifications and experience matched exactly the job requirements. VERY DISAPPOINTING!!!Unless they don't want qualified and experienced employees in the industry in order to pay them less or train them the way they this case VERY UNPROFESSIONAL!
