    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Lutheran Social Services of Illinois.

    Interview

    The interview was at first over the phone- where I talked to my would be supervisor about the job position and requirements. I was then asked to come in. You came in to talk with all the staff in a round table style interview, which at times was very unprofessional and not job related. It was the oddest experience I have ever had with an interview.

    Web Designer Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Lutheran Social Services of Illinois (Des Plaines, IL) in July 2014.

    Interview

    I had an excellent in person interview, then it went downhill from there.

    The hiring manager contacted me directly via email in July. We talked briefly
    over the phone. I have over 15 years of corporate experience and right before the recession I ended with a nice salary that is typical for web developers. Because this is a non-profit organization, he seemed blown away by my salary range which is a typical range, he gave the impression that this job would barely meet my minimum needs.

    I have been unemployed off/on for a very long time since the recession and just need a job at this point. I recently had some low paying temp jobs along the way so I figured no big deal.

    Having said that he immediately set me up with an in person interview for
    later that week. The interview went extremely well, very relaxed, very conversational, no silly stupid quiz questions. Conversation was focused on my resume, experience, and the duties of the job.

    I left there thinking there's a highly good chance I will get this job. I followed up a couple of times for the next couple of weeks with no response.

    I finally got an email for the manager stating how qualified I am, how great my skills are, how great my designs are but yet he went with another candidate.
