I have never been asked that ever and she showed genuine concern that I like working for her as much as she would like working for me. She said she was very impressed with my qualifications and style.   1 Answer

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Olympus Corporation of the Americas.

    Interview

    I have never been apart of such a terrible interview process, regional manager was late and dug into only my first part of my resume. You could tell they have never done a interview together before, told me the people who use percentages on their resume lie... first time I have ever heard that. I had my numbers there to back it up, felt like they were just wasting my time. Even if I was offered I wouldn't take the position, sad such a great company.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Olympus Corporation of the Americas (Center Valley, PA (US)) in July 2017.

    Interview

    Interview was held with HR person over the phone. She advised I would be moving to the next round and to expect an email with next steps. After not hearing anything for a week and a half, I followed up with her and received no response. Afterwards I checked the application portal to find out they passed on my application. While they may have had valid reasons for passing on the application, the lack of professionalism/non-responsiveness of the HR staff, especially after being told you are moving to the next/final round of interviews reflects poorly on this organization and frankly is a good sign to me that I would not want to work here. They don't treat potential candidates with much respect and that's a big red flag in my mind.
