    Assistant Director Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    I got a phone interview for an Assistant Director at a professional school at the University that I attended. The interviewer was pretty rude and at the end of the interview, said I would hear in a week or so and that they wanted to fill it fast. I never heard. I knew the interviewer from having attended that professional school and saw them a couple times a few months later. They never told me I didn't get the job. It was posted for months and months and I saw that it was filled recently. No one ever told me, not even a blanket rejection from the University. I am extremely appalled at the poor way that the University of Chicago treats job applicants. You would think that as an alumni of the school, I at least deserved a two sentence email just informing me I didn't get the job. I think not telling people they didn't get a job after you interviewed them is highly unprofessional behavior and I am very disappointed with the University of Chicago.

    Interview Questions

    • The first question was initially HR bounced your application because this job involves X and you don't do that so why do you want this job. It was a truly ridiculous question because the job description mentioned the work I do in my current job at least three times and my current job is very tied to the work they were hiring for. It made absolutely no sense and I remain confused about that question to this day.   Answer Question
