    Development Director/Expansion Director Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Nairobi (Kenya)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Bridge International Academies (Nairobi (Kenya)) in November 2013.

    Interview

    First HR Telephone screen (Nov 2013) focused on walking through my work experience, this was followed immediately by a situational case study that was specific for the role. I was immediately asked for 4 work references, which Bridge made it sound like they wanted to contact immediately.

    After waiting for 3 months without any updates, I had a second call (Jan 2014) with the CSO. The interview lasted 1.5 hours, was very unstructured, and I felt interviewer did not really care about what I wanted but tried to pigeon hole me into a specific role based on my experience and background. At the end of the call CSO noted she wanted another data point and asked me to complete another case study. She was very interested in recruiting me, and I was told that we would talk 24 hours after turning around the case study

    2 weeks went by and I never heard from Bridge. They have also never called my references.In the end I withdrew from the interview process and choose to work elsewhere.

    From what I can deduce from my experience, I believe Bridge has very weak internal structures, partially because the husband/wife CEO/CSO team makes all the decisions. This leads to bottlenecking of key staffing decisions and probably all internal strategy and ops decisions.

    • These are questions pertaining to the challenges Bridge faced I could not resolve e.g. 'What would you do as a Planner when you submit a planning brief for a site that has already been developed for approval and the District Physical Planner demands to visit the site before recommending to the relevant local authority?'   1 Answer
