    Account Manager DACH Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Stansted, England
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied online. I interviewed at Zemax (Stansted, England) in September 2019.


    A very lengthy daily process , 3 stages and a presentation , I prepared very well and though performed well, the company did not have the decency to provide a proper feedback to the agent and just let the whole process fizzle out, totally unprofessional and contemptuous . Total waste of my valuable time. At least have the decency to give proper feedback when candidates take their time to go through this process
