    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at William Hill (Las Vegas, NV) in May 2017.

    Interview

    I've seen a few people with the same experience I had in pursuing this position -- phone interview with head of HR, followed by a video interview with three senior management types, with the same explanation of what would happen next -- a meeting with (in all likelihood) the CEO. But that third step never came, nor did any communication on where I stood. And talk about a tease -- the first question HR asked me in the phone screening interview was if there ever would be a point in the hiring process in which the CEO at William Hill US could reach out to my current general manager. I knew my resume was dynamic and matched everything they were looking for -- for that question to be asked right out the box was just the first step in what ultimately was a significant letdown.

    That William Hill reposted the position shows WH never truly knew what they wanted. Not to mention it was reposted with some brutally horrific errors -- was knowledge of the horse racing industry preferred, or was strong knowledge of the horse racing industry required? The new ad actually had both of these items under "Qualifications". Of course, when I reach out to HR about the position's status about 3 1/2 months after the video interview , I get turbo-responded with a form email detailing they've already filled the position. Total bush league for them not to have sent something earlier.

    Let's be clear -- at this point I already knew I wasn't going to get the job. You just know these things. And I've got other strong prospects in other segments of the gaming industry that I'm pursuing. But you're not gonna advance me that deep in the process and then just hope I go away.

    Sports wagering is the next frontier for explosive growth in this country's gaming industry, but I'll never again seek employment with William Hill. If they treat their current employees like they do prospective employees, it's an obvious hard pass for me and should be for you too.
