    Team Lead Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    This was one of the worst interviews I've ever attended. I felt like a drill sergeant was grilling me. He was incredibly unwelcoming and even though I was told they would work with my schedule for an interview, they picked opposite times. I will never waste my time for employment for such unprofessionalism.
