    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at British American Tobacco (New York, NY (US)).

    Interview

    Not good. Took me about 1 month to complete all the assessments which I passed. No way of following up.I tried calling the HR department several times, even left voicemails. Finally got an email 3 weeks after with a decline even though I'm qualified. I guess because I have no contacts there my application was tossed. Also, while it's understood automated systems are to make it look easier, nothing is better than a face to face interview. There are parts of people you can't see via a questionnaire. The job market is frustrating as it is, your interview process should be reviewed.
