Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 months. I interviewed at Teach for America (New York, NY) in Apr 2014
The recruiter reached out via email after receiving an employee referral. After a general phone conversation, the candidate was invited to formally apply for the position online. The next step in the process was a set of performance tasks which were designed to be completed and submitted by email. There was a prompt response back upon receipt of materials promising to be in touch within a week to discuss next steps and schedule a formal interview for those moving forward. No follow up occurred. Several months later, candidates received an email survey asking them to evaluate the interview experience. At that point, a follow up email generated a quick reply that the organization was moving in a different direction with regard to the spec for the role.
- The interviewer requested that applicants complete a lengthy set of exercises to gauge candidate fit for the position.
