I applied through other source. The process took 4 weeks – interviewed at Aristotle International in July 2014.Interview Details
I had applied over the years both online and after speaking to their employees/HR manager at a career fair as well as a networking contact. Since I had direct and related experience I kept trying.
I finally got an email asking to set up a phone interview. I spoke with one person, and we discussed various parts of the job: my previous experience in this field, what it was like working at Aristotle (since there were obviously some differences between them and my previous experiences elsewhere), working in a team vs. individually, what were my programming/coding skills, the process going forward, etc. Overall I felt it was a positive interview, that the interviewer and I managed to develop a rapport via the phone interview and that at the very least I'd get contacted to come in and speak with them in person.
In a separate email the interviewer requested my references and my salary requirements. Again, I assumed that he had requested more information was a positive sign that I'd at least move onto the next step.
2 weeks went by, and nothing. I noticed the job was reposted and decided to contact them the following week, to see if something would pop into my mailbox, but nothing. I followed up the following Monday. Got no response for 2 days and I assumed I wouldn't hear back.
However, I did get a response and apology, stating Aristotle was not hiring for this position at this time, but I was a great candidate and to please contact the interviewer if I should reapply for another position with them. Although I am somewhat confused (why repost the job? The job is also still on their website), I do appreciate getting a response instead of being left never knowing.Interview Questions
