    Marketing Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at VSO (London, England) in September 2019.

    Interview

    Straight forward task and interview. The Interview process was a positive one. Told I would hear back within a few days but never heard back from anyone. Very unprofessional in my opinion as cost and time taken off to go to interviews is not easy! Would not want to work for a company who think that is ok.
