I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks – interviewed at Waterworks (Washington, DC) in February 2011.
From the very beginning I got a weird feeling from the manager. He took a long time to communicate and seems very short when I asked questions about roles, benefits and stability of the company financially. I had two interviews. One with the manager and one with the regional director. I don't think they liked each other as their body language was very strange.

Reasons for Declining
I just got a weird feeling from the staff and was told there is high turnover because of management.

The interview was incredibly pedantic and highly unprofessional. My first question was am I a US citizen -- indicative of a checklist of additional questions that were to be rattled off without a true professional setting. The person I spoke to had absolutely no clue what she was talking about or about best practices. It seemed that the company is not progressive and is more interested in having underpaid "production monkeys" rather than people who could actually help grow the business and move further into the digital age.
- I was asked a generic question about banner ad sizes. To ask if the person wanted to know about Rising Star specs, Rich Media specs or Universal Specs would have had the interviewer in a conundrum and would have threatened her sense of competency. Answer Question
