    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at GDS Group.

    Interview

    Phone interview with Jenn in HR. Two in person interviews. No hard question. If you can add 2+2 and have some sales experience they will hire you. That is my opinion.

    Event Manager Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at GDS Group.

    Interview

    Everything started out really great. There were 2 interviews total and I was notified promptly at the beginning of each week when and who I would be interviewed by. The interviews themselves were honestly great conversations. I had done my research, reached out to current employees and they seemed to appreciate my curiosity. It wasn't until the end of the interview process that everything fell apart. I was contacted by HR early Monday morning (3 weeks total from initial interview) congratulating me on being offered the job. I then hopped on a call to discuss the start date and salary requirements, Their salary offer was a bit low and I countered $5,000 over. HR said they would get back to me and they never did. Two emails to HR, one email to the hiring manager, one phone call and 3.5 weeks later (note: no one responded until I called) I was notified that the position was no longer available and the company had rescinded the offer. There wasn't an explanation-- I'm confused if it was personal or they just simply overhired. I'm a very reasonable and understanding person but to leave a potential employee in the dark for 3.5 weeks to then rescind an offer without any explanation is unacceptable. I spoke to numerous people about this and no one had heard of this happening. I would not recommend this company by any means. I don't feel they respect your time or value your worth.

    Interview

    Very bizarre process. Phone call interview with HR representative, interview was driven to background and details about position and company. Was then asked to come in for an in person interview and then never heard back from the rep again. Was told i would receive an email with instructions on the in person interview date and time and never got the email or a response back.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at GDS Group (New York, NY (US)) in December 2019.

    Interview

    Applied to GDS group through indeed in early December. In mid-December, I was sent a time and date for a phone interview (which was the next day) and I was asked to confirm. I confirmed the interview and I was then sent a confirmation email. I never got a call from the woman that was supposed to interview me. I email her about 30 minutes after our phone call was supposed to begin and she never answered me. Hands-down the most unprofessional experience, I've ever had. She didn't even have the decency to email me back. I scheduled my whole day around this interview. Also, they didn't even ask what times/dates worked for me they just scheduled a phone interview time. This company is clearly poorly managed and does not care about people's time. Stay away.
