    Director of Operations Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Campbell, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Hightail (Campbell, CA) in December 2015.

    Interview

    Applied on LinkedIn. Took several weeks to schedule a call with the recruiter. Recruiter called 45 minutes late and never called me back or answered the phone. Also never replied to any emails. Extremely unprofessional experience from their recruiting team. I can't recommend anyone apply to such a broken company.
