Interview

I made it to the top 2 for an interview process, and they told me they would be checking references, including my current supervisor, who was not my reference. I expressed concern, because if I did not get the job, I would fear retaliation. They told me they understood, but never reached out to my references and chose the other person. This is SUCH an inequitable process and ensures that folks with toxic supervisors never get hired.

Interview

I've interviewed for a few (3) Program Manager level positions at Stanford, getting to the final round in each. They've all consisted of a phone screen, a first interview, and a second interview. Communication is generally slow and unresponsive, and two of the three times the hiring committee completely ghosted me. The third time, my references were called and were positive, but I was not offered the position as another candidate had more experience.

Interview Questions
  • Describe how you handle multiple competing deadlines. Describe a time you dealt with a difficult or demanding coworker.
