    Corporate Recruiter Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Vancouver, BC
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at PDFTron (Vancouver, BC) in December 2019.

    Interview

    Very casual and unorganized. They did not seem to know what they wanted or what they were doing during the interview process. They also seemed to be very "full of themselves" and lacked professionalism. I was skeptical going in as I had read the negative reviews on GD but I thought I would give them a chance, that was a waste of time.
    They did not even respond or acknowledge my follow up email, which is the very least you can do when someone takes a couple hours out of their day for an in person interview.
    Do yourself a favour and avoid this company, I believe the negative reviews over micro management and over bearing managers are accurate.
