    Communications Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in High River, AB
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Western Financial Group (High River, AB).

    Interview

    The interview process was very unorganized and unprofessional. The interviewers were unprepared and ran late by 45 minutes. The HR lady thought I was interviewing for a different position than what I had applied for. After the interview, I didnt hear back from anyone until I finally reached out three weeks later. Hopefully other people have a better experience than I did and it was a one off.

    Interview

    Very strange interview and hiring process. It took forever for them to make a decision and get back to me. However, the people that were in charge were very nice, but I hope they are more clear in their expectations of people. In conclusion, I believe they just need to fine tune their hiring process.
