    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Univar in April 2015.


    Received a phone call by HR and was asked a couple of questions about myself.
    Here is the odd part, at the end of our conversation this guy told me that he will have to get back to me as he needs to get some more information about the open position. I would expect and advise that you would/should do that prior to an interview. Of course he never called back which leads me to the conclusion that I might have not been what they are looking for, which is okay, but this was just odd, very unprofessional and childish.
