    Development Department Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA
    Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at KQED in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I did a phone interview with the position's supervisor (around 30 minutes), and then was invited into the office for a panel interview (around 3 hours). After that, I had a second phone interview with another person from the department. Directly before this, KQED asked me for permission to perform a thorough background check. As they had mentioned they would only be doing background checks on the final candidates for the job, I knew I was being seriously considered. After all of this, I heard nothing back from them, despite emailing for an update and to ask if any other information was needed. Eventually, around 2 weeks after the last communication with them, I called HR to inquire on the status of the position. I was told they had hired someone else. I was very surprised not to have been informed at all, particularly since I had clearly been in the final few candidates. I was incredibly shocked that they were not going to let me know at all about their hiring decision, particularly given how extensive the entire process was.

    Reasons for Declining

    I really like KQED and suspect I would have learned a lot. However I was offered another position at a company I felt was more in line with my career interests.
