    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Optima (Glencoe, IL) in October 2017.

    Interview

    I submitted my resume and answered their quick short answer questions, a few days later I was contacted to come in for a inperson interview. There was no prior phone screen. Once I arrived I was rushed into a room and asked to wait.....

     Berke Assessment, I understand taking assessments prior to employment however asking a candidate to take an assessment that takes over an hour and then never getting back to them is extremely rude. I understand not passing, however leaving people hanging is just rude and reflects poorly on the company. It is not hard to send a generic email on why the process isn't going to proceed. I understand why I was informed of their high turnover.
