    Receptionist Executive Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Seattle, WA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at SMART Technologies (Seattle, WA) in February 2016.

    Interview

    The recruiter for this company is awful. She initially contacted me by phone and email to schedule a time to discuss the job. Scheduled a phone interview with me and did not call at scheduled day and time. I sent follow up emails to reschedule the phone interview. She told me by email that she would contact me with the day and time for a new phone interview. Finally, the next week I called her her office in Canada and finally talked to her about job. All the while, she keeps mentioning how busy she is and has run to another meeting. How rude and unprofessional. I get in person interview. The staff members I talked to were nice. Standard interview questions. Job was not offered to me. Okay, that is fine. A month later the recruiter finally sends me an update about the position. A month later.
