    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Case Western Reserve University (Cleveland, OH).

    Interview

    There was a phone interview followed by in-person interviews and a group presentation. Very intense and time consuming. They never communicated afterwards at all. No rejection, no offer, nothing. Feels like a complete waste of time. Shockingly unprofessional.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Case Western Reserve University.

    Interview

    One month after I applied, I was contacted to do a phone interview with 2 members of the department. Two and a half months after the phone interview I was contacted asking if I would come in for an in-person interview. I was told the reason for the delay was that the position had temporarily been put on hold, but now they were ready to fill the position. I met with the original people I did the phone interview with, plus 3 additional people. At the end of the interview I was told they would be making a decision within one week. I never heard anything else. I contacted the hiring manager 3 weeks after my interview to ask about the status of the job and never got a response. I don’t think it was ever filled. It’s pretty disheartening when you spend a lot of time preparing for interviews and taking time off from your job to do them and can’t even get a courtesy response letting you know what’s going on.

    Communications Role Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Case Western Reserve University in September 2019.

    Interview

    Very disorganized overall.

    First started with communications people who were very nice. Took a writing test. Heard nothing back directly from them. Then was called by the school to come in for an interview. Interviewed for 2-3 hours with four different individuals. There had obviously been no communication between the school and the university communications people. Very awkward. Felt confrontational at times when interviewing with the school. Communications people and the school seemed to have different understandings of the job duties.

    Immediately sent all my thank you's to the interviewers. Asked for clarification on reporting and who would be doing the hiring (ie, university communications or the school). No response. Waited some weeks and reached out to communications, who responded that the school was still interviewing. Saw today that the job has been reposted.

    I do believe CWRU could do better in their treatment of candidates. Disappointing for such a world class institution.
