    Pros

    Mission driven; quality product; nice work environment

    Cons

    Sometimes we do things that are not good business and serve a very small segment of the community. These things take time and resources away from projects that are more productive overall to the community we serve

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at WGBH.

    Interview

    Applied online and was contacted by an HR rep to have a phone interview. The phone interview was very short (15 minutes) and standard phone screen questions. A few days later I was emailed to set up a Skype interview with the hiring manager. The morning of the interview I was emailed to reschedule the interview (no reason given). We rescheduled for a time that I was coincidentally going to be in Boston for a face to face interview. One day before that interview I was emailed to switch to Skype as they had closed the office for the day (weather related). Ten minutes before the interview was finally going to begin I was emailed to reschedule again because they had to cancel (again, no reason given). After emailing them my availability I didn't hear back for a few days until I was notified that I would no long be interviewed as they had filled the position. My guess is that they just kept me on the backburner until their #1 choice accepted an offer.
