- Application Details
I applied through other source. The process took 6 weeks – interviewed at Concur in September 2014.Interview Details
Concur reached out to me at the beginning of August. I scheduled an initial screening for the day they sent me an email. They also sent a personality test. After completing this I schedule a phone interview with the hiring manager. After her I had another phone screen with a manager outside of the district. Two weeks later the recruiter reached out and asked me to schedule an in person with the hiring manager and her boss. Everyone communicated well during the process.
At my in person interview I learned that her boss was "stuck in traffic" and wasn't able to make it. We schedule a 30/60/90 review for 2 days later. Once again her boss wasn't able to make it.
While in person and during my presentation I was told that I was her top candidate and she didn't want to meet any others. Also I was asked if I was available for their week long kick off and was told if not it wasn't a deal breaker.
Fast forward a few days and I finally meet in person with her boss. At this point based on everything said I was expecting an offer soon after.
Instead I received a phone call telling me I don't have enough experience and they want to keep looking.
I felt completely blindsided at this point based on the conversation I had with the hiring manager less than a week prior.Interview Questions
