    Executive Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Brentford, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at GlaxoSmithKline (Brentford, England (UK)) in July 2019.

    Interview

    Very pleasant experience initially. I was Interviewed by the prospective manager early July but received absolutely no feedback from Talent Acquisition despite calling, texting and emailing. Then come early August I discovered the position reposted on an external job board. This, i understand is now referred to as “Ghosting”, where the company never comes back to you. I expect this from agencies or much smaller companies and it’s even ‘excusable’ following an initial screening but after a 1:1 I find it damn right rude. I am particularly disappointed and surprised that GSK behaves in this manner. Such a shame.
