    Finance Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Waukegan, IL (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at WMS Gaming (Waukegan, IL (US)) in March 2014.

    Interview

    The phone interview had to be rescheduled due to illness, but they never sent me a new interview date until I reminded them to do so. The actual interview was roughly 5 minutes long after I drove 3 hours to get there, and they never sent me an email regarding my being denied the position. I sent a follow up email and got no response. Completely unorganized and ridiculous process.
