    Interview Details

    After having my initial interview via the phone, I was scheduled to meet the existing Director and CIO. I received a call as scheduled but with just the Director. We had an excellent interview and it went so well the Director stated he would recommend they I get scheduled for the panel interview with the Gulf Port leadership as well as the IT leadership. Some time went by and then I got an email stating I wasn't being considered any longer. I emailed the HR rep stating how disappointed I was, She returned the email saying that my salary requirements were out of line which I had already mentioned it was within the range - a non-issue. She said she was going to look further into it and I'm still waiting for a reply.
