    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Communities In Schools.

    Interview Details

    I interviewed for a midlevel position and while the email exchanges had seemed normal the HR interviewer on the call set a very negative tone at the open by insisting on a hard salary requirement within the first 5-10 minutes of the call. I explained that without knowing more about the job, duties, and a general feel for the benefits package it was impossible to compare to my current position.

    The HR rep insisted and I calculated an estimated range with the caution that we had only been talking for at most 10 minutes so I was unable to say this would be acceptable without knowing more if the conversation was to continue. The HR rep then took the lower part of my estimate, bruskly stated that's as high as they would go and then abruptly asked me, "What do you want to do?"

    I responded I was open to finishing the conversation, but at that point my interest was gone along with my respect for the organization.

    Interview Questions
    • Being asked for a salary range for a job without having discussed any of the relevant information upon which any range could be calculated. I can see that at the end of a conversation, but not 5-10 minutes in after barely exchanging introductions.   Answer Question
