    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 7+ weeks. I interviewed at General Cable (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Took two weeks to get phone interview. Took a month after that to get in person interview. Communication was a mess and very unprofessional. Should not take that long to request interview.
