    Creative Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Mountain View, CA
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at MZ (Mountain View, CA) in February 2018.

    Interview

    It took a total of 5 hours for me to talk to 5 people. I was sought out on LinkedIn by a recruiter. Phone call, then phone call with hiring manager and brought on site. Asked recruiter about work life balance. She said it was great. It was obvious throughout the interview process no one had a real life outside of working there. So I declined being considered further for the position. I'm pretty sure the reviews on Glass door are true.
