    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Ryerson (Minneapolis, MN) in April 2014.

    Interview

    I received an email from Ryerson one afternoon. They found my resume online, and offered me a position with the Ryerson Academy. Called me later that afternoon, had 1st interview, got scheduled for 2nd interview. Next interview went well. Third interview the following week, virtual style on Go2Meeting. I thought it went well, guess it didnt. Didnt get the job. Kind of made me mad because I had taken time off to go through interview process, and thought I was a shoe-in because of how hard they were recruiting me to begin with. Appreciate the interview experience. I realize now some of my short comings, and and better suited for future interviews.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at Ryerson (Philadelphia, PA) in October 2012.

    Interview

    Went to two interviews before I was offered the position. Interview process was more of a conversation. It was not a STAR interview and did not make me pull examples from my past to see how I would handle the same situation in the future. Things change with time, people change with time. The way I did things back then may have been the best way at that time, but may not be the best way to do it now. Personally, I think you get a better understanding of personality, character and skill when you ask a candidate "what would you do?" I think the STAR interview focuses too much on memory and candid answers. It takes away from the essence of the interview, finding the right person for the job.
