    Contract Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Salt Lake City, UT

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Myriad Genetics (Salt Lake City, UT) in August 2015.


    The interview process at Myriad, at least in my experience, was typical of other companies, with one exception. Online application submitted through Myriad web page. Email received from HireVue, but no phone call or email from Myriad. Completed video interview through HireVue. HireVue follows up with an email saying a Myriad rep will contact about "next steps." And then .... nothing. No response of any kind.

    The purpose of this review is to point out that companies that value their employees don't act with such arrogance and disregard. I had no problem with Myriad's decision to not hire me. I'm sure they had their reasons. But I am offended by its misleading message, and utter lack of professionalism. If a prospective employee takes the time to complete their lengthy online application, and then the video interview, Myriad--indeed, ANY prospective employer--should promptly follow up and provide closure. The best companies to work for today do that. And if Myriad can't get that part right, it's very likely they don't get the other parts of the employer-employee relationship right either.
