    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at ESPN.

    Interview

    Terrible, terrible, terrible. Worst HR I have ever experienced. Applied online for a position, heard back 2-3 weeks later to schedule an interview. Prepared all week for the interview and then the HR recruiter never called me! Emailed the recruiter immediately after explaining we had an interview and asked if we could reschedule. She called me two weeks later with no notice at 7AM leaving a voicemail. I call back and she said she dropped the ball and totally forgot about our interview and she woke up this morning ( 2 weeks later) thinking to herself I forgot to call someone. During the interview she asks what my availability is to come in for an in person interview on Friday. I give my availability and she says she'll talk to the hiring manager and get back to me. After not hearing anything by Thursday, I email back asking if they wanted me to come in on Friday. I wake up Friday morning to an email sent at 2AM confirming my appointment for that day! Luckily I saw the email and was still available to come in for the interview. I receive a phone call from the recruiter 30 minutes prior to my interview confirming I was going to attend, which I thought was strange. I found out why when I got to the office. I wait over an hour at the office with no explanation before the hiring manager finally shows up. The recruiter put the wrong time for our interview in her calendar, so we had to rush through my interview because she had another appointment scheduled. A few days later HR sends me a link to fill out five references that they could reach out to. 99.9% of the time when this happens, that means you got the job. My five references fill out the form and then I receive a generic email over a week later saying I didn't get the job. Unprofessional throughout the entire process. Will never apply to this company again.
