    Associate Director Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at UMUC (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Contacted by HR via email for a quick screen, then Webex interview. I did amazing in the interview and they told me I'd move to the next round (probably happening the next week). I wait two weeks and drop them a line to get an update, and I'm told the interviewer is busy but that I should hear back the next week. That week comes and goes, another half week goes, and still nothing.

    I understand people get busy, but at a certain point it just becomes poor time management on the part of the interviewer, not "busy".
