Interview

The interview scheduling process at Pitt was easy and they set up interviews quickly. The actual interview was very fair and they staff asked great questions. The staff were very friendly. The only problem was that they set up a series of 5 interviews at one time before knowing that they even wanted to move on to the next step with me.

It was a long interview. kind of overwhelming yet everyone was friendly. That helped to make it go by a little faster. in the end, it probably made sense being that length.

I interviewed at University of Pittsburgh

Interview

I applied as an internal candidate. Woman from the department emailed me the next day to set up a 30 min phone call. We have the phone call, I honestly thought it went very well. I followed up, she didn't respond. I got an automatic email stating I am no longer considered. I email her again asking what I could have done differently to get a second interview. She ghosted me. I know people are busy, but being ghosted is extremely unprofessional and I already work here at the University. I can only imagine how rude interviewers are if you are an external candidate.
