Assistant Manager Interview

Assistant Manager
Washington, DC

The process took 3 months - interviewed at Georgetown University in April 2010.

Interview Details – Very long...phone interview and two in-person interviews with multiple people. It spanned over a few months with lots of follow up. I don't know why they were taking their time, but in the end, it worked against them because I got frustrated. Nice group of people, though. It seemed like a nice work/life balance.

Interview Question – I don't remember. Nothing too difficult   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – Had a few other offers. Didn't think it was the right fit for me at the time. Was also unsure how i felt about the manager i would be working under. It seemed like the office was in flux, which I later found out was true.
