    The interview process was brief and straightforward. The interviewer seemed a little confused as to why I was interviewing for the position, despite the job description not specifying majors for the position.

    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    In reviewing Glassdoor they had poor reviews, so I knew going into it that they had had significant turnover. I interviewed with a supervisor, who I found polite and friendly, however I felt the job wasn't the best fit for my goals (most of the department has been there less than four years) but agreed to a second interview with the manager from another department. This manager was abrupt bordering on rude and in almost every interaction made it clear he didn't value my time. The final nail was when he denigrated my degree and experience. I haven't had such an awful interview in a long time.
