    Territory Manager, Endotherapy Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Olympus (Tulsa, OK (US)) in September 2017.

    Interview

    Was contacted by a recruiter for a phone screen. Passed the phone screen onto the hiring manager. Hiring manager emails me for the first time on September 19th wanting to have a face to face in less then 24 hours and doesn't give me any other times, can only meet tomorrow. So of course, I move things around and was able to meet the hiring manager. He was 25 minutes late to the interview. Liked me well enough for him to say follow back up with him in two days to schedule a ride along with another rep. I left him voicemails, emails and texts and nothing back. Didn't hear a word back for for over a month and a half till I called him one last time and he finally told me they hired someone else. Extremely unprofessional .
