I was contacted by Vanguard Management Group about interviewing with a specific medical device company that I am interested in working for. I was instructed to sign up for an interview time at the location that the interviews were to be conducted. I did this, and received a confirmation email stating that I have secured the interview with the specific organization for time that I wanted.
When I showed up for the "interview" there were approximately 20 other candidates there. After waiting for about a half an hour we were all led into a room where the Vanguard employee gave an overview of the companies that were present and qualifications for each. Each of the other organizations that were in attendance were companies that have reputations as people mills.
After wasting another half an hour with the Vanguard employee telling everyone to keep an open mind, and to interview with as many of these "excellent organizations" as time permits, he went on to market Vanguard's resume writing services.
This has been more of a waste of time than anything. I took the morning off from my current job specifically to interview with the medical device company. I was led to believe that I had a specific secured 1 on 1 interview time. Instead, what I got was information on a resume writing service, not to mention that I did not even get to interview with the company that I was scheduled for due to time constraints.
Finally, when I left this event, I talked with one of the other candidates in attendance. He too was led to believe that he had a scheduled interview with the medical device company only to be disappointed as well.
I would recommend that you not attend any event/scheduled interview that this organization sets for you. You will undoubtedly be very disappointed as I was.
