Senior Director, IT Service Delivery Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Brooklyn, NY

I applied online and the process took 3 months - interviewed at NYC Department of IT & Telecom (DOITT) in June 2011.

Interview Details – I had a phone screen after applying for the posting online through the DoITT website. I then had a face to face interview with the Ricardo Browne, it was supposed to be a group interview but others did not show. The interview went well and next steps was to make up the interview with the other members of the group.

Fast forward 6 weeks later I had the panel interview of which one employee had to leave early. The questions were very basic IT questions. Part of the panel consisted of consultants which made no sense to me since the position was going to be fulltime with DoITT. One of the consultants consistently asked questions then spoke about himself in the 3rd person on how he would or has handled similar situations. After the interview i sent a thank you letter to each person on the panel individually and personal. Not one replied.

The hiring manager fell silent for weeks, which turned to months. After numerous attempts to reach out to him I finally gave up.

Very rude, unprofessional organization that will not attract top talent if they treat potential employees this way and trust contractors too much.
