    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency - interviewed at International Council of Shopping Centers.

    Interview Details

    I interviewed with three different people and each had a different vision for the role. I was surprised to see such lack of alignment. An SVP was completely unprofessional and diminishing during the interview. Another person kept talking about himself which was odd. Company seems to have some big egos.

    Reasons for Declining

    Read company reviews and talk to colleagues in the industry who ensured me the company was stuck in the 70's.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at International Council of Shopping Centers in January 2012.

    Interview Details

    I spoke with the recruiter 3 times via phone and e-mail, sending him my resume and tweaking things here and there. I also met with him once in his office and filled out his employment application. He then made an appointment for me with the business. I went on the interview and knew right away that it was not going to end positively for me.

    The company was located in the Time-Life Building, and had a diverse staff. The HR representative (an older woman) responded positively to me with a warm smile but had smirk on her face immediately and basically told me I didn't fit at this company. Her exact words were "I don't want a round peg working a square hole" - "I want my employees happy" - I was wondering why the entire time, as I tried to prove myself with each answer, citing examples of my past performances and work ethic.

    I left the interview upset and agitated, wondering what I had done wrong, - was it my shoes? My hair? I immediately called the recruiter. He was flabbergasted and told me he would get to the bottom of it. He called me back 2 days later to let me know I just didn't have the 20 years of experience they were looking for.
