    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Yellow Pages Group (Indianapolis, IN) in May 2015.

    Interview

    I began an application online, which is a long process because it requires providing writing samples and completing an aptitude test. I didnt have time to finish it right at that moment, so I put it off for a week. Much to my surprise, I still received a phone call. I went in for the interview. The first 30 minutes was another writing test, followed by about 45 minutes of questioning from two different managers. When I left, I asked when I should hear back from them. They said by the end of the week. I did not hear back by the end of the week, so I got in touch with the hiring manager around the middle of the next week. She asked me to come in to shadow another employee. I came in again and shadowed two different employees. The second person I shadowed seemed nice enough but had nothing positive to say about the job and complained about it the whole time, which was extremely discouraging. Before I left, I sat down for a few minutes more of questioning. I was asked to share my references, so I emailed them later that day. Again, I asked when I should hear back and was told by the end of the week. Again, I did not hear back. I contacted them again and was told they would get back to me, but I never heard from them again, period. I'm not sure why they didn't just tell me that I hadn't gotten the job. The exact same job has been posted online recently. I should note that I do have small facial piercings that I didn't take out for either of my trips to their office (although I did try to conceal them with makeup--plus, I asked and was told they didn't matter), and I partially credit that for not having gotten the job. I also think my enthusiasm waned the longer the process went on, and I stopped caring. However, I was explicitly told several times that I would be apprised of any new developments, and that didn't happen. The people interviewing me would have been my bosses, so in the end I'm glad I didn't get a job working for people who don't follow through on promises. They were polite but seemed disorganized and unsure of what they were looking for in an employee.
