    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at DDB Chicago.

    Interview

    I was emailed to do a phone interview with a recruiter from NY. I was waiting for the scheduled call for about 10 minutes so I called the recruiter on the phone. The recruiter answered unprofessionally and said she was running behind and would call back. In the interview, the recruiter asked me about my resume and that was it. Then said she would forward my resume to the hiring manager and to contact her in a few days if I don't hear anything.

    Few days past by and no response. Recruiter said she didn't hear and she would be out next week . I asked who the hiring manager that I could contact was while she was out and she stated she doesn't know who the hiring manager is.

    Never seen such an incompetent and unprofessional person and an incompetent process.
