Companies in 2021 getting outrageous with these interview timelines


Sent them my CV last week, did their psychometric test last Saturday, received this gem at 5 pm today.


Any savage got a time turner or DeLorean spare?

A video interview, another video interview, psychometric test, online assessment, more exercises and a case study, and then another interview all for an entry level sales position? I'd walk.Β

This is happening at ALL levels of sales interviews right now. Β These companies seem to have too much time on their hands to do all this BS. Β I would love to know how effective this has been for hiring. Β Wait till they present a shitty salary to go along with all this non sense.

Ya, I just went through the interview process and one company tried this shit. Luckily first thing I asked was how much does a top sales rep make in this role. F all. Cool.
Who TF is putting up with this shit for a job that pays peanuts.Β
