    Interview

    Applied online in April. Received an email from a recruiter a week later for a phone interview. After phone interview I went in person to meet with two senior managers. I was told I would hear back in 1 - 2 weeks. The overall interview was pleasant. I felt extremely comfortable it felt more like we were having a conversation. I followed up with the hiring manager two weeks after my interview, and recieved an automatic response from human resources stating I was no longer under consideration for the position.

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at American Cancer Society (Edison, NJ) in July 2010.

    Interview

    I applied on line sending my resume. HR person contacted me. Asked my salary requirements. My requirements were $10000 more than they wanted pay. I decided to go on the interview. I met with two directors younger myself. That was not a problem. Interview appeared to go well. The stumbling block which remained was my salary requirement. I was e-mailed about a week later that they had hired someone who was a better fit.
