    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a dayinterviewed at Con-way Freight.

    Interview Details

    It was a very disappointing experience as I came perfectly prepared and the company was not. I got many sorts of conflicting information.

    First, I met with HR, who said the entire team got an email this morning so everything was ready. They made sure I would have a Mac adapter, which I requested, and I was actually going for a 2 hr interview (not 1 hr as previously stated). She said I was meeting with one person from UX, and then the entire team. I said that was fine, even though it was not as planned.

    When I met with actually 2 people from UX, they seemed surprised I had a presentation, which I was told to prepared. They also did not have an adapter, and seemed to have never heard of a request. Luckily, I came ready with a flash drive in case this happened. Then, they ended the interview at 1 hr, and i asked where I was going next, but they said it was only a 1 hr interview, and they'll ask me back after discussion. One person didn't seem to know what project they were hiring for.

    I'm not sure where the breakdown in communication was, but it was one of the most disorganized experiences I've been through.
