    Marketing Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at AstraZeneca in January 2020.

    Interview

    I was contacted by an AZ recruiter on LinkedIn. Had a phone screen with the recruiter, hiring manager, and then brought onsite. Interviews were fine and received a verbal offer the next day. It was the offer process that was horrible because they did bait and switching of the role and then ultimately rescinded the offer to “go with an internal candidate who can start right away” despite start date never being discussed with me. First, I had explained from the start with the recruiter I couldn’t immediately relocate to Delaware and they said I could commute indefinitely. 1 week after I received the offer, they came back and said I needed to move right away. I said I needed to consult my husband. A couple days later, I was about to accept after looking into costs of getting an additional apartment in Delaware, but then they rescinded the offer saying they found an internal candidate who could start right away. Note that start date was never discussed so I’m sure this was BS. Thank god I didn’t quit my current job, the bait and switching put a bad taste in my mouth.
