    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at American Councils for International Education.

    Interview

    I applied on the recommendation of someone I know, and was contacted for a phone interview shortly thereafter. I've worked in international education for several years and wanted something part-time for extra money. I was contacted for a short phone interview.

    1. My interviewer asked me what times I'd be available, and scheduled me for a completely different time without even addressing that. I could make that time, so I didn't bring it up, but I found this odd.

    2. My interviewer was late. I emailed her to see if we were still on, and she then called, but she was 10 minutes late.

    3. The interview itself was easy, rather in-depth for a part-time position but nothing unusual. What was quite odd is that she didn't ask me if I had questions at the end, as is standard in interviews - I had to bring this up myself, as I did have questions.

    4. She then told me she'd contact my references. All of my references were contacted within the day and all replied - two work at my full-time job so I know they filled out the form and I let them know in advance so it was no surprise. I highly doubt they sabotaged me for no reason, haha.

    5. Nothing. I haven't heard a thing from my interviewer, even after following up with her.

    Now, I've had interviews where I did not receive an offer, I think we all have. But I found it quite odd that they would bother my references with no intention to make an offer. Even on interviews where I did not receive an offer, my interviewer has kindly followed up and let me know as such - it's never fun to hear but I always appreciate it.

    I am a little confused as to why they would even contact my references with no intention to make an offer. I truly don't think my references said anything negative as I work with them and I contacted them in advance to give them an out. Even if they had, a rejection email if you know you aren't hiring someone is standard. I do recruiting and hiring in my full-time job and I would never treat a candidate as unprofessionally as I was treated.
