Easy Interview
Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Advance Auto Parts (Greenwood, IN) in May 2023

Interview

The interview was great and all. It was an older method/style for an interview. I did explain and elaborate numerous times about my current position elsewhere since that is the last year plus of relevancy. I detailed numerous times about needing a consistent and stable schedule during the interview come August. I knew my summer would be wonky, and I accepted that. When I got a call after receiving an offer, I wanted to verify that my schedule would relatively be the same come August. I was told that it was a few months out and they had no idea what that looks like because it was too far out. As the conversation went on, it felt like I was trying to be gaslit and manipulated into taking a job, and I stayed hesitant so long on that call that it was a mutual this won't work. My sister was next to me and she could here the volume of the other person get turned up like a dial as the conversation went on.

Senior Graphic Designer

Hello all- I have a question. Context: I've completed a four-stage interview process for a design position at a large retail corp. The final interview on Nov 15 went very well! I sent thank-you notes that week and last holiday week sent flowers and an edible arrangement, thanking and asking about next steps. They said they have been busy + will reach out soon. It's almost been two weeks. They have been so eager the entire process and now it's quiet. Should I email them again? Is this normal?

Analyst

For anyone who has ever gone through an interview process, only to be told at the end that the role is on hold (due to budget review or such) have you ever actually gotten reached out again with an update? It happened to me today so just wanting to see if it makes sense to just treat this as a rejection even if i was told there might be an update.
