    In person interview with 3 staff including associate director, current training specialist and the principal of the experimental education unit preschool/kindergarten.

    Business Analyst In IT Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at University of Washington (Seattle, WA) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Phone screen interview with the hiring manager first. Few weeks later, coffee with the hiring manager and a member of his team. I took Uber from work at noon and paid $24 one way. I would have expected for him to let me know yay or nay. That would have been professional and considerate. Instead, crickets after two follow ups.

    I was disappointed with the behavior from the hiring manager.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at University of Washington (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I was not interviewed for this position. I applied using Husky Jobs, and got the job without so much as talking to anyone at HFS or Pagliacci Pizza. Odd way to do things, but I guess they trust their review criteria for resumes and such.
