    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at American College of Surgeons (Chicago, IL) in June 2017.

    Interview

    This was one of the strangest interviews I've had. The HR person proceeded to tell me she believed I was overqualified for the position based on the last job on my resume(then why did she contact me, at all?), that the "Coordinator" role was more of an entry level "Assistant role" (why not call it that in the advertisement then?) and that if I was looking for room for growth, that there "really was no room for growth", a bizarre comment as there is almost always some room for growth unless the company has widespread layoffs. She came across as difficult and bullying. She asked "Why are you a good fit for this job?" (a question I rarely get any more, because it's designed to make the candidate "beg" for the job). She also asked, "Why didn't you use your last job as a reference?"(none of her business who I use as references--very unprofessional). For people out there who are new to interviewing, don't put up with this type of interview! HR interviewers should be polite, respectful, and appropriate at all times. Having this person represent the ACS and their HR department, is only hurting the ACS. It makes me concerned as well, that their current employees may be receiving really poor services from HR.
