    IT Support Specialist Interview

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 9+ months. I interviewed at Schroders (New York, NY (US)).

    Interview

    I applied to Schroders at the beginning of 2016 and got the only reply from their HR Department 9 month! later. Informing me that they regret to advise that I was not shortlisted. I am glad for that because I just started a new job at another company. However I question how the HR department of this company is "working" if they inform candidates after 9 month! This is ridiculous.
