The process took 1 week - interviewed at Tides Center in June 2010.

Interview Details – Unfortunately, I have to say this was probably the worst interview experience I've ever had.

The phone interview was actually good. The HR person was thorough and was assessing a cultural fit. He seemed very interested that all candidates actually want to work at Tides and that they weren't just arbitrarily looking for a job with any company.

The in-person interview was different. It consisted of a 1-hour panel interview with 4 individuals in completely disparate departments. Personally, I feel that 1-hour to simultaneously convince 4 different departments is a near impossibility for anyone except sales people; not systems analysts.

What made the interview more vexing is that all but one of the interviewers seemed completely unprepared. They all sat in the room and said almost nothing. They had no questions to ask and mumbled halfhearted answers when questions were asked of them. Ultimately, they seemed to have no agenda.

The questions which were asked centered largely around the job description and ultimately just amounted to "Tell me about a time when you [insert line from job description]." There was little response beyond that and the person leading the interview would then just move on to the next question.

Interview Question – Tell me about a time when you have implemented an ERP system.   Answer Question
