    Interview Details

    I had a phone screen with HR coordinator and was then invited in for an interview with the HR Manager, who talked about benefits and culture. She was pretty honest and encouraged me to look at the reviews online, which made me wonder what that was all about. I also took a personality questionnaire online beforehand. I've never been asked to do that but they take it seriously. I wonder if they're filtering by how cooperative people seem to be, i.e., they don't want people to shake things up. Because I was curious and wanted to see for myself, I came back for the second interview with the manager and three of the team members. They were all very nice. About a week later, the HR coordinator informed me that the position was no longer available because they company decided to go a different direction and combine two positions into one. I would not have accepted the job based on the reviews here anyway.
