    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    I received an email 3 weeks ago asking for available day and times for a phone interview. I sent up to two weeks of available days and times and did not hear from the recruiter at all. I sent a follow up email asking was the position still available and offered additional days and times of availability. The recruiter offered a day of her choosing and I replied that I was not available on that day. I didn’t receive a response. I sent a third email asking why I had not heard anything, and the recruiter replied that she had been under the weather, but was ready to conduct the phone interview. She never called.
    This is one of the most unprofessional organizations that I have dealt with in all of my life. The lack of communication leads me to believe that this is not a place that I would want to work for.

    Sustainability Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Inova.

    Interview

    I received an email on a Thursday evening from Inova's "Recruiter Team Lead" about setting up a phone interview for either the following day (Friday) or Monday. I replied back that Friday would work best for me. No response. I emailed again on Sunday to see if I could do it on Monday. Still no response. This all happened shortly before Labor Day weekend so I emailed again after the long weekend writing that I was still interested in the position. Again, no response.

    While I was certainly interested in the position, the complete unresponsiveness has turned me off to the employer as a whole.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Inova (Falls Church, VA).

    Initially seemed good. Everything moved fast at first. Wasted time and money since I lived out of town. I was told they were jealous because of my Master's. Could've interviewed via Skype since they saw I had a degree. Never called back to reject me. I ended up callin them and they were short.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Inova.

    Interview

    Interviewed for a job in a research lab. My prospective boss called me 'babe' during the interview and made multiple sexist comments. He berated my current boss at the time. Completely inappropriate. Contacted the facilitator of my interview multiple times to receive my reimbursement for my interview and haven't heard back for months. Met many administrative members of Inova who were very nice but overall my interview was absolutely terrible. I made it very clear at the end that I was in no way interested in the position.
