    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at City Year.

    Interview

    I was extremely disappointed when interviewing for an impact manager position in Texas. I was asked for my references and promised a phone call or email within two weeks with future steps, yet never received any further communication. I have always respected City Year as an AmeriCorps Alum and this was disheartening.
