    Account Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sydney (Australia)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Gumtree (Sydney (Australia)) in March 2016.

    Interview

    Applied through a recruiter, next step was to do a mock pitch with their Sales Director over the phone. However the Director was rude and impatient, and tried to blame me for having a poor connection while it was obvious that I was calling from a desk phone.

    To make things worse, he didn't even bother picking up the phone again when I called back as a courtesy to thank him for his time. Such a great attitude to have towards candidates.

    Pay was on the low side so I eventually pulled out after having such negative experience. It is worth mentioning that the Director has now left and has opened his own consultancy.
