Getting an Interview
Getting an Interview
- No OfferNegative ExperienceDifficult Interview
I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Institute for Healthcare Improvement (Cambridge, MA) in August 2015.
I applied online, was contacted a few days later by someone in HR to set up a phone interview with the person who would be my boss. The phone interview lasted exactly a half hour. I didn't hear anything for about a week, and then I received a email from the HR contact asking me to complete an assignment within 48 hours. The instructions were very vague, and when I asked for more specific instructions they said it was "up to me". The assignment ended up taking about 5 hours. After submitting it, I again didn't hear anything for about a week - at which point HR contacted me again to ask me to come in the following day for an in-person interview. Upon me asking who I was meeting with and how long I should expect to spend there - they informed me I would be meeting with 5 separate people for a half hour each. Everyone was nice and seemed passionate about their job - questions were moderately difficult, but the interview went very well. After completing the interviews I emailed all five individuals to thank them for their time, etc - only one person responded. Two weeks passed following the interviews and I hadn't hear anything. I emailed the hiring manager to ask if I was still being considered - and didn't receive any response. A few days later I emailed two of the HR contacts to ask the same, and still didn't receive any response. Finally six weeks later, a separate person in HR who I'd never been in touch with emailed to ask if I had 15 minutes of time for a quick chat on the status of the search. I was unable to chat and asked if she could update me via email, at which point she let me know that due to the evolving needs of the role, I wasn't a fit. All in all - very disappointed with IHI's handling of the process. Considering how much time and effort I invested across the phone interview, assignment, and in-person interviews, their lack of response to my emails was completely unprofessional, and unacceptable for that matter. Hopefully this is not a reflection of the entire organization.
