    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at AARP in May 2015.

    Interview

    I am a little frustrated with their hiring process. I applied for a job about 6 weeks ago and was reached out immediately. Then a month later I had my first interview with an HR person via telephone. The phone interview went pretty well and at the end of the interview I was told that I will next be interviewed by the VP of the department. Despite writing a nice thank you email and a follow up email about a week after the thank you email was sent, I never heard back from the company.
