    Average Interview


    I applied in-person. I interviewed at GrubHub.


    At the end of several interviews, I was told I had the job. The recruiters even expressed concern that I might be working on other offers. I declined to engage another opportunity based on repeated assurances; there was nothing unclear, they told me the position was locked in, they just needed time for the paperwork. A few days later, I got a short call saying that for "business reasons" the opportunity was gone. Willfully misled, bait and switched. I would find it very difficult to recommend the company.
