    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at ArenaNet.

    Interview

    I applied May 5, 2020 and was invited to do a phone interview June 9, 2020. I was told I’d been vetted to move on in the process which was exciting. The interview was basic, no questions related to art. That was supposed to come later. The compensation they mentioned after I was asked about my salary requirements was rather low, especially for the living costs of the area. Remote work apparently wasn’t an option. One of the questions asked was for my availability. The following day was the only day I’d be unavailable for a follow up call that week. I was told I’d receive a call later in the week. I emailed follow up questions to my interviewer the evening of the interview day. They tried to call me on the day I was unavailable. No voicemail. I left a message afterward. I haven’t heard back since. No email, no call, not even a rejection letter.
