    Associate Settlements Operations Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Rensselaer, NY

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at New York ISO (Rensselaer, NY) in November 2016.

    Interview

    -Applied online with a referral.
    -Received an email a few weeks later requesting a phone interview.
    -Had a 30 minute phone interview with 2 managers.
    -About a week later I received a second email requesting an in-person interview.
    -Had a face-to-face interview with a panel of 4 people, including managers and HR.

    Important information: The position I applied for was asking for someone with an Associate's degree, I have my Bachelor's. Also on the application I had stated that my salary requirement was 2,000 BELOW the minimum end of the salary range for this position. I also had an employee referral from someone who is very successful and high up in the company. With that being said I expected very different results in the way I was treated. At the time I had a great feeling about the whole process. I had done days of research about the company and came in very prepared. After the panel interview I was told I'd be contacted about the results within 1.5 weeks. It has now been a month and I have heard nothing. I reached out to several people 3 times, via email and phone and still no one has contacted to me. I hate to give negative reviews but I feel extremely disrespected by how I have been treated by NYISO. I had high hopes and was let down overall, not because I wasn't extended an offer but because of how they've treated me. It was a very unprofessional experience. I would keep all of this in mind when applying.
