    Communications Specialist Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Thyssenkrupp Elevator (Chicago, IL) in May 2017.

    Interview

    A total of eight interviews during a three-month period (a combination of calls, in-person and failed attempts at Skype calls due to technical problems from the HR dept.) This seemed extreme for a mid--level position. thyssenkrupp's HR people were cordial and polite, and blamed the lenthy wait times in between interviews on the hiring managers' busy travel schedule. My first interview of 2 in person meetings with the hiring managers was scheduled for a Friday at 4 p.m., and I didnt leave the office until nearly 7 o'clock that night. After another interview where I was asked to execute a hypothetical PR situation, I was told they would be deciding between me and another candidate. I really wanted the position and made that as clear as possible, but the other guy (or girl) got the job. It was a stressful interview process that unfortunately ended against my favor. All in all, the HR people were great but the hiring managers were disrespectful by not bothering to thank me for all the time I invested in their hiring process and learning their products inside and out. After all was said and done, I felt relieved that I avoided an employer who disregards the time and effort of job candidates the way this company did.
