    Development Director/Expansion Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Nairobi (Kenya)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Nairobi (Kenya)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 months - interviewed at Bridge International Academies in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    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.
