    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Busch's in June 2017.

    Interview

    I submitted my application online and was then contacted for a phone interview with a recruiter for their company. The recruiter was rude to me during the interview and at the end became more abrasive when the interview had lasted over 30 min so she was behind for her next interview. I felt like I shouldn't ask the questions I had originally prepared, but she pressured me to keep asking questions, one of which she responded by saying "It is my job to know that so I am very familiar, I don't have time for this question though." I was extremely interested in the job so I brushed it off. The interview itself was not what I expected as a first interview and an interview with a recruiter. I was asked very in depth marketing questions, many of which related specifically to Busch's. It was awkward to use common marketing terminology with someone not familiar with it and I felt I had to over explain myself or "dumb it down," which probably put me at a disadvantage. I was told they would be conducting in-person interviews the following week and when I hadn't heard anything I e-mailed the recruiter who replied back saying "Actually, I wasn't sure if it would be this week of next week." I brushed it off again and said I looked forward to hearing if I would be invited to proceed in the interview process. This was now a month ago and no one contacted me to let me know if I would or wouldn't be proceeding. Overall, it is a very bad experience when someone represents your company that poorly. While I am young, that is no excuse to treat an applicant as I have been treated. I now have a negative outlook on the company and can say their recruiter has turned me off both as an applicant/possible employee AND customer.
