    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Columbia Sussex (Tampa, FL).

    Interview

    No HR, manipulative and not professional. They seemed to have certain priorities that pushed them to want to fill other positions rather than the one being interviewed for. Thus they sold me on a lesser position and because of this I will be leaving and taking them as serious as they treated me.
