    Negative Experience

    Application

    The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at American Girl in February 2017.

    Interview

    HR contacted me through LinkedIn, shared the job description and asked if I would be interested in interviewing for the role.

    A phone screen with the hiring manager was scheduled within a week.

    The hiring manager said they had a lot of qualified candidates and they would decide who they would invite back in a week.

    They declined to invite me for an interview or give feedback.
