    Application

    The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Viacom.

    Interview

    Applied for a position on line received an email from HR a few days later. We set up a telephone screen to discuss my background in more detail. Nothing too earth shattering from a difficulty perspective. I thought it went well.

    A few days letter I'm contacted to set up time to meet with a few people and the prospective hiring manager. These meeting went well and was told that I would hear back concerning next steps. Never heard back after several follow ups. I understand how the hiring process works today. I also get the prevailing sense of overwhelm that companies feel as they go about their hiring processes but to never hear back is poor form and is probably an indicator of how things are run in the organization. Any contact would have been nice, but whatever. I wouldn't work there anyway. Good luck.
