    Easy Interview


    The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Hunter Industries.


    Applied online, got an email from an employee saying he wanted a phone interview. He called me the next day and we had a 30 min interview that went really well I thought.
    Then he never contacted me again! No rejection, no moving forward. The radio silence was very unprofessional. I would've followed up but ended up getting a better offer somewhere else.
