I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Association of Independent Mortgage Experts in August 2018.
Phone interview was conducted with the "Integration Architect" for the Senior Product Manager which lasted for about 30 minutes. During the interview, it was said that the need was immediate and they were looking for someone ASAP as they had immediate needs that a PM could really help with for both an October and January deadline that they had. Nothing specific about the job was mentioned but some background about the company was talked about as well as the background of the candidate. Both the candidate and the "Integration Architect" thought it was a good match. Architect said due to the need that the next step would be an in person, group "round-table" discussion in the next couple of days. A tentative day and time was set up, with the interviewer to confirm.
The day before the agreed upon meeting, candidate calls interviewer on cell phone and leaves a message (as multiple emails sent asking for confirmation of the meeting had gone unanswered) asking about the status of the meeting. Interviewer calls back and states that CEO is unable to make the round-table, and it will be set up now as a 1-1 with the CEO directly next week. Additionally, interviewer will personally start the communication with the CEO's executive assistant that day to set up the meeting.
Candidate calls interviewer on cell phone a week later and leaves a message (as two emails sent asking about the status of the meeting have gone unanswered) asking about the status. Later that evening, an email is sent from interview to executive assistant asking to set up the meeting for the following day, as well as an apology to the candidate for not getting this sooner.
The executive assistant schedules the meeting for the following day (which is accepted) which, two hours later, is rescheduled for them middle of the following week (which is also accepted). Fifteen minutes before the supposed call, the executive assistant tells the candidate that the CEO needs to reschedule the phone call (this makes 3 times) but will let the candidate know the following day. After candidate emails the executive assistant (because they did not email as they said they were going to) asking the status, they were told that the CEO, and I quote, "had to take an unexpected trip" and upon his return they would coordinate a time.
Three weeks later, simply because of curiosity, candidate emails both parties asking if the CEO has returned from his trip. He is then informed that they ended up going with another person for the position.
So, let us sum up:
1. Phone Interview, with the promise of a 2nd interview in 48 hours.
2. 2nd Interview is postponed but only because candidate had to find that out on his own.
3. 2nd Interview then changed into a 1-1 "phone interview" with the CEO.
4. Executive Assistant rescheduled/lied about scheduling 4x.
5. Job got given to someone else.
