I applied online and interviewed at FirstGroup America.

Interview Details – I interviewed with a director and a member of the Human Resources team. The interview lasted about an hour, and I thought it went fine, save for the fact that they asked me the strangest questions that anybody has ever asked me in an interview. After the interview was over, I e-mailed the director to thank him and to send along some requested copies of my work. I never heard anything back, which I didn't think much of because I know they still had other people to interview. However, they ended up NEVER getting back to me - even when I emailed later on politely requesting a status update. How hard is it to send a simple email letting me know that I didn't get the position?! I tend to think very little of a company who goes to the trouble of spending the time to interview you and then not even being professional enough to let you know that you weren't selected for the position.
