    Center Director Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Charlotte, NC
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Sunshine House (Charlotte, NC).

    Interview

    The process was long and drawn out. FOUR interviews, no offer. The process was unorthodox in a bad way almost from the beginning. The interviewer contacted me and over the phone she very excitedly told me how I had come highly recommended by current employees (all managers), and she sounded as if she felt I was perfect before meeting me. She did a brief phone screen and invited me for a face-to-face. But when I went in for the in person interview, she started off first thing by telling me about the absolutely wonderful candidate she had interviewed earlier that day, and about another very strong candidate she had. It seemed as if before she met me face-to-face I had the job based upon the resume/background/current management recommendations/phone screen to "oh, wait I made up my mind about someone else just before you got here sop you've wasted your time." During the 15 minute interview--yes 15 minutes for a manager interview--she did most of the talking and asked only 3 questions. Then she gave me the "do you have any questions for me?" thing, signifying she was through. Then she told me I'd hear whether I got the job or not within 3 days. Seven days later I got an email to interview with a center staff person. I found it odd that I'd be interviewing with a potential employee, and it sounded as if it would be my potential employee's decision on who got the job, but I went along with it. After being spoken to by the staff person, I was invited to come back. After four interviews and 30 days (and my references never contacted) I was finally sent an email that I didn't get the job. Apparently the other two great candidates fell through as well because they started advertising for the position all over again right away. After 3 months they have still not filled the position.

    Interview Questions

    • I was asked 3 questions: why are you leaving your current job, how soon can you start, and tell me about your boss. I rated the interview very difficult because of the strange and lack of appropriate questions, the fact that in the third and fourth interviews I wasn't asked any questions at all (the other person just talked), and that the process took so long with no offer. Who interviews four times and doesn't receive an offer nor feedback on why you weren't a good fit?   Answer Question
