    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Black & McDonald.

    Interview

    My initial phone screening was rushed and the lady acted like a drill sergeant! My first impression was to cancel my in person because I had a feeling this company wasn't going to be worth my time. I was correct in that assumption because after my in-person interview I was told to complete a personality assessment and wait to hear back. I waited for month's to get an answer and that never happened. Black & Mcdonald is by far the most unprofessional company I have encountered in my entire career. They would lie and tell me that I was still being considered and then never got back to me. I would call and send several emails and I would get zero responses. The only reason I knew I wasn't being considered anymore was based on checking Linkedin to see that someone already got the job. Please do not waste your time with this company, it's clear that they don't respect their applicants, so you can imagine how they treat and respect their employees.
