    Application

    The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Crain Communications.

    Interview

    Absolutely terrible. Talked to an hr woman who did not know much, if anything, about the position. Went in for an i person interview. Immediately after they requested to schedule another in person interview. Very inconsiderate of my time, considering they could have schedule both for the same day. The second interview was unlike anything else. The interviewee tried to be intimidating but instead came off as unprofessional. I knew immediately I didn't want the job. I was told I would hear back in a few days, but I didn't hear back until two weeks later. Extremely drawn out unprofessional interview.
