    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at University of Pittsburgh.

    Interview

    *Applied online and received phone call approximately a week after application
    *Interviewed approximately a week after initial phone call
    *Typical interview with pretty standard interview questions
    *Received follow up phone call and then email stating "congratulations, you are our final candidate for this position. Pitt HR requires reference check from you current supervisor, so once that's done, we will forward everything on to HR."
    *I wasn't exactly comfortable with this, but I provided them with my supervisor's name.
    *Waited over a week and a half to hear anything and when I did it was a form response stating that I didn't get the job (mind you I spoke to all of my references and I know I received stellar references (including from my supervisor))
    *Followed up only to find out that a 'last minute candidate' came in after they started the process with me that had the 'exact' qualifications that they were looking for,
    *In my opinion, highly unprofessional.
