    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Burson-Marsteller in January 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online and was contacted by email a few days later to set up a phone interview. The HR representative changed the time three times and then was late calling me for the interview. That turned me off of the company, but I still went through with the interview and scheduled a second phone interview.

    That interview lasted all of ten minutes with the HR person trying to schedule time for an in-person interview towards the end. She said she would email within 48 hours with an official time. I emailed to follow up 48 hours later to find that they had gone with another candidate for the process. Even after trying to schedule me for an in-person.
