    Associate Brand Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Mattel (New York, NY) in February 2013.

    Interview

    Imagine doing your first in-person interviews and being contacted just a couple hours later because they want to bring you in for 2nd round interviews. Sounds great but then the HR coordinator spent the next THREE weeks asking for when I was available and I gave them several days each time. This went on over multiple emails and I couldn't believe that they finally sent me an email saying they were now looking at other candidates! Why would you contact me asking me for interview dates for 2nd rounds and wasting my time to give me an answer like that? Terrible experience and I wouldn't have taken an offer anyways given the lack of follow through and professionalism.
