    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Converse (Boston, MA (US)) in August 2020.

    Interview

    Did two interviews, first with the HR person, consisting of basic background conversation and the role. The second interview was with the hiring manager, where the conversation was around the job in more depth as well as walking through my background and answering questions on past work experience. Overall the interview itself was easy, although the logistics of setting up interviews and knowing where I was in the process was horrendous. It took weeks to go from the initial HR interview to the hiring manager interview. Then It took weeks to hear back on the whether I was moving forward with the next step. I finally get an invitation to talk on the next step and the HR person decides to ignore the call. Then when I followed up with the HR person to see if they wanted to reschedule, I never heard back from them; completely ghosted after spending 2+ hours plus several weeks on the process. You'd think HR at such a big company would have better manners than this, especially at a time when the economy is tough for the unemployed.
