I have been working at Crain Communications full-time (More than a year)
great work flow, time and people to work with
no cons. everything is perfect
I did not even consider doing an in-person interview, because the HR person was extremely unprofessional, which told me all I needed to know about the company. They emailed me asking for my availability for a phone interview. I responded the same day. About a week and a half passed, and I never received any confirmation from the HR person, so I had to follow up with them to see if the phone interview was even still on the table. The person responded and apologized, and finally scheduled a phone interview. When the day/time of the phone interview arrived, they never called me. Again, I had to chase down the HR person to find out what was going on. I emailed them, but they did not immediately get back to me. About 2 hours later, they tried calling me and wanted to have the phone interview right then and there. This is completely inconsiderate. Although I'm looking for a new job, I currently have a job (as most applicants do). First of all, I already had to rearrange my scheduled to accommodate the initially scheduled phone interview. Secondly, I find it rude that the HR person would think to call me back hours later and expect that I was free to do the phone interview then. They have a very selfish "it's all about me" attitude that immediately made me realized what kind of employer they would most likely be. I politely declined proceeding with the interview process. I'm simply not that desperate for a job to have to deal with such unprofessionalism.
