    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at CDC (Atlanta, GA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    1. CDC emailed me requesting an interview: stated there would be a writing session at the end 2. Called and confirmed interview date and time 3. Panel interview with 2 other managers 4. Stated would hear back by the end of next week-did not 5. Emailed managers and asked for feedback, stated more interviews were added and would hear back the following week-did not 6. In the end they gave the "run around" for one month and did not follow up as promised. I then emailed to ask again for the decision when they notified me of closing the position not selecting anyone. Very unprofessional for the CDC and I do not want to work there after this experience. Thank you but no thank you. Grateful I got a chance to see for myself.
