Advice to Management
Lock me out of the office after the lay off meeting rather than before. ;)

I applied online. I interviewed at WideOrbit (Vancouver, WA).
As a warning, my experience is limited to the Vancouver office. I can't speak for WideOrbit as a whole.
The process was straightforward, started with an HR interview, then one with the hiring manager, then an onsite one. All of those went really smooth for the most part. I did notice a distinct lack of diversity in the office, with having been interviewed by only white males and only seeing males in the office. However since their office only had around 25 people, I didn't think it was a big deal. What didn't go smooth was after the final interview. They called me to let me know that they were excited about me and that they were going to move forward with an offer. All that they needed to do was check my references and do a background check. Because I'm transgender and have had a name change, I thought it necessary to let them know so the background check turned out okay. After I did, I didn't hear back from them for about 3 days. I then received a call saying that they decided to go with someone else instead and would not be moving forward with an offer. She then went on to tell me how great the candidate was they decided to replace me with. She kept on touting his skills, why they were better than mine, and why he fit the business better. While rather unprofessional to tell a candidate he/she will be getting an offer only to go with someone else, I figured these things can happen if they find a better candidate at the last minute. However in this case, I was rather suspicious. The timing from when I told them I changed my name, to the decision to rescind intent of an offer, to telling me why the other candidate was better than me, was just really strange. Part of me really wants to believe they just happened to find a better candidate at the last minute, but part of me also realizes that transgender people do get discriminated against, and that there was a very real possibility that that happened to me.
