    Business Development Manager - BC Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Commissionaires in January 2019.

    Interview

    VERY UNPROFESSIONAL!

     I interviewed for the BDM role at Commissionaires on January 22.2019 in Vancouver, BC.

     The hiring manager asked good questions and was very thorough. I was short listed and asked to prepare a group PowerPoint presentation 1 week later which took me about
    6 hours to research, prepare, make hard copies and I took time off work (again) to present my findings. It lasted about 45 minutes with 15 minutes for questions and I followed up when I got home reiterating the importance of teamwork since it's critical to their business model.

     ONE MONTH LATER I'M STILL WAITING TO HEAR A RESPONSE! A simple "thanks, but no thanks" would be fine. But to pull a disappearing act? As a recruiting professional, I can tell you this is a disgrace.

    Good news: competition, and lot's of it. For example: the number one private security company in Canada recently made a large acquisition in Burnaby with more planned, so "what goes around - comes around." My suggestion to management: keep doing what you are doing and your turn will come. Good luck - you are going to need it.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Commissionaires (Timmins, ON) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Applied directly through a recruiter, got an interview the next day. Extremely unprofessional, we met at a Tim Hortons for the interview. He gave me all of the info and asked if I was still interested. I told him that I was and so he gave me an application package. Arrived home to 2 missed phone calls. Checked my email and he told me the position was already filled, waste of time for an interview... Unreal.
