    Financial Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Coty (New York, NY) in October 2015.


    The interview process was extremely long and inconsiderate. I applied through a recruiter early September but didn't get an interview until October. The first interview was for the position meeting with two individuals for the position I applied for and later I was asked to come back for a second interview with two upper management executives. One of the executives really liked me and thought I would be a great fit for his department, I was later asked to come back for the third time for another position. I met with three additional managers this round. I interviewed three times as they thought I was a good fit for two different positions, to have later not received any further communication regarding their decision or offer. I think it is very considerate and unprofessional to waste someone's time like this company did. If you know someone doesn't have the extensive experience your requiring don't waste their time and interview them, you can verify their experience from their resume. All the while, politely contact the person or email them back in regards to your decision.
