    Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Portland, OR
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at University of Portland (Portland, OR).

    Interview

    Catholics need not apply? That's the baffling feeling I took away from this experience. I was asked, "Why University of Portland?" regarding my interest during the interview, I then proceeded to share that as a Catholic I'm drawn to the College's mission. With my response I was told by those interviewing me that they personally were not Catholic and that "about 50 percent of employees are not Catholic." Awkward. Things felt rushed and uncomfortable after this. The questions were pretty standard interview questions concluding with a quick tour. The process took approximately 25 minutes. Weeks later I received a phone call, leaving a message to call back. I returned the call to be informed I wasn't selected for the position but was told my resume was impressive. Awkward. I had applied for another position there, same department, but HR rejected me for that with an email with no interview. I don't understand why the experience was so uncomfortable. Needless to say I will never apply for another position there again.
