    Workforce Development Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Interview

    Interestingly enough, I felt unwelcome as soon as I stepped foot in the interview. Moreover, the questions asked by the interviewer seemed to be intended to steer me away from the position. I was taken aback with the overall tone of the interview. As a POC, who grew up in a predominantly Black/Latino community, it was both off putting and offensive that the interviewers ( who happened to be Caucasian) without warranting, questioned my authenticity and intent.

    Needless to say I was not impressed and accepted another offer elsewhere.
