    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Edison, NJ
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Edison, NJ
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at American Cancer Society in July 2010.

    Interview Details

    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.
