Interview

I got an interview through a friend whose father worked at ZGF in a different city. The interview itself was easy going with a lot of getting to know the firm and the kind of experience I had. After several follow up emails, someone finally replied that they didn't have a position for my level of experience, though during the interview they said the opposite.

I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at ZGF Architects (Los Angeles, CA) in Dec 2016

Interview

I was contacted by an independent recruiter who was working on their behalf. I had aa phone interview and was then asked to come in for an in-person interview. Everyone was very nice, I will say. But I had to wait 20 to 30 minutes for the assistant who was interviewing me since he was tied up. He was looking for an EA with high energy, but I didn't see any energy coming from him. I chalked that up to him being busy and likely tired. (I interviewed at the end of the day.) I was fully dismayed at the follow up. I received no answer on the job. No follow up. No answer from this recruiter. I spent my time and money to drive through traffic for this. I wonder if this treatment is a sample of what it's like to work there? Glad I didn't get the job. To rate this experience I give it a "meh". Not good, not bad. Disappointing.

 The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at ZGF Architects (New York, NY) in Jun 2016

Interview

The company reached out to me and I had a phone interview. After that I had a very comfortable 2:1 interview in the NYC offices. The teamed seemed very nice and transparent and I had no complaints from the interview process. I am discouraged though, because despite them telling me they would tell me either way within a week, I never heard back. I also sent a follow up email explaining I was still interested and should the position be filled I'd appreciate some feedback moving forward. They didn't respond, which I found extremely unprofessional given the fact that I gave them my time and they reached out to me. Sadly, this type of behavior is all too common with employers.

I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at ZGF Architects (Seattle, WA)

Interview

The woman who would be my 'boss' came up to Seattle from the home office in Bellevue to interview prospects. I had gotten my resume late in the process as I had another job & couldn't decide if it would be best to keep that job or go for the ZGF position. When I sat down, Jan (who was the CFO and Manager of Admin.) and I immediately hit it off. It was so amazing that when I got the job and spent my first week in Portland following her around we both kept saying, oh that's just what I was going to say. Obviously, it was a very comfortable interview and went well.
