- Application Details
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at Olson in August 2014.Interview Details
Contacted a little over a week after applying online. Got a phone call saying this position was going to have interviews at the beginning of the following week, final interviews by the end of the week, then start the next Monday- so the entire interviewing process would be one week long. I had a phone interview at the beginning of the next week with a recruiter in Minneapolis (the position interviewed for was in San Francisco). Interviewer was very flaky with questions and gave mixed signals throughout the interview which I thought was strange for an initial interview. Questions focused more on my college coursework than my relevant work experience or what kind of skills I have or worker I am. Since the job posting was very vague, I asked about the job responsibilities and what a typical day would look like. The recruiter didn't know how to answer this- she said she believed there was some research and writing involved, but wasn't sure. I don't know how she is supposed to determine which candidates are right for a role when she doesn't even know what the role does, or how to answer that simple question. At the end of the interview, she said I would hear back in a week and a half to two weeks. I was a little confused because I thought the job was starting before that but again, she wasn't sure. She asked me to email her writing samples, which I did, along with a letter of recommendation and references. I never heard back so after two weeks I followed-up reiterating my interest. It has now been another month and I never heard anything back, not even an automated response.No OfferNegative ExperienceAverage Interview
