Helpful (2)Declined OfferNegative ExperienceEasy Interview
I applied online. The process took 6 weeks – interviewed at Georgia Tech Research Institute (Atlanta, GA) in September 2014.
I submitted a resume during an online job fair. It took many weeks to hear from GTRI. Eventually a face-to-face interview was scheduled. It was an all day interview. There are many people dealing with the hiring process. These people have very little (or no) interaction with the people making the decisions. PersonA contradicts was personB says. PersonC paints a picture of what goes on in the hiring process, but this has very little to do with reality. At the end of the interview I still had no idea what the job entails. Despite my questions, I still don't know what is expected of me. I had no idea if my skill set applied to the position I was being considered for. I had no idea what future work might be coming. I had no idea how this position could benefit my career. The (contractor) recruiter they use was very difficult to work with. (Don't rely on her doing proper job. Babysitting is needed.) I had to repeatedly chase her to keep the process moving. Dealing with her was an exercise in wasting time. Important issues are relegated to Emails rather than picking up a phone.
- The questions were all reasonable. (Far removed from the bashing you get from a Google interview.) The interviews were of the form of general conversation. Most of the questions were about your prior work. They scan through the resume and ask about different items. In the end they are looking for keywords. They appear to have a general myopic point of view. There is very little preparation on their part. They really don't care about the interview. Answer Question
Reasons for Declining
The offer was 20% lower than the industry average. There was no negotiation on their part. Their lack of communication was stunning poor. They didn't seem to care about hiring me or filling the position. The arrogant attitude of management didn't sit well with me. There seems to be a pervasive atmosphere of intimidation. The passive aggressiveness was apparent in the interview. I didn't get the impression the people working there were happy to be there.
