    Interview Details

    I was referred in so the process wasn't difficult to get an interview. Once involved in them though, it was easy to see that there was conflicting information & direction on what was needed from the role & department from the direct hiring manager & the next level manager. HUGE red flag.

    Interview Questions
    • How do you manage expectations when dealing with a challenging personality?   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    Didn't feel like the leadership was on the same page - usually an indicator that you'll be put into a losing situation.
