    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at VWR.

    Interview

    I applied online and received an email to schedule a phone interview with a recruiter. The phone interview was easy enough and consisted of a few questions and an overview of the company. The recruiter told me she would contact the lab manager and email me by the end of the next day as to whether or not the manager wanted to move forward with the interview. That was last week and I never heard from the company again. If I wasn't selected to move forward then fine, but to tell me to expect to hear from you and then completely disregard me is beyond unprofessional.
