    Web Content Specialist (Contracter) Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Milwaukee, WI

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Synectics (Milwaukee, WI) in September 2011.

    Interview

    Responded to contract job opportunity through Synectics for a Web Content Specialist.

    Unprofessional approach from the start. E-mail contacting me contained spelling mistakes. Telephone interviewer seemed unclear as to exact role of job, and failed to understand basic terminology involved.

    I was even (accidentally?) sent a misspelt internal e-mail after my telephone interview asking for advice from other staff members.

    A very negative experience. A shame, as I'm sure the actual contracted job would have been fine.

    Go with other agencies if you want more than a junior school level of professionalism and spelling.
