I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at HCSC (Chicago, IL).
Applied online and was contacted by the recruiter a week later. I was emailed a list of pre-screening questions to answer that pertain to the job. I was then scheduled to speak with the hiring manager a week or two later over the phone. The phone interview was pleasant and I enjoyed the conversation. Then I was invited to come in for an onsite interview. I was scheduled to first meet with the recruiter at 12pm to complete some paperwork. Upon my arrival, I checked in at security and then made my way to the HR office. Unfortunately for me, the HR office was closed at 12pm for lunch. Immediately I thought there was some miscommunication. So I verified the email confirmation and then tried calling the recruiter. She did not pick up. I went back to security who let go up to my hiring manager's floor. However, I could not get in their floor without a badge. So, I had to resort to waiting outside the HR office until 12:30pm when the secretary came back. I checked in with him and told him I was supposed to meet with the recruiter at 12pm. He rudely told me to sit down because she already knows. The recruiter came out and, being me trying to be courteous, apologized for it being half an hour later than our meeting time. She told me it was ok and that we'll just have to rush through the paperwork. That response really upset me since she was the one who dropped the ball. I was then late to meeting my interviewers. The interview itself went well. I spoke with the hiring manager and his manager. I showed them some of my work samples. Leaving the interview, I was upset and did not have a good feeling. I didn't really care if I got the job or not. I didn't bother sending a thank you letter to anyone. But, about a month later, I was offered the job. They did not do a reference check but I had to do a drug test.
