    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Berklee.

    Interview

    Applied online in January 2017. Got an email for a phone screen in probably late February or March. Phone screen was with an assistant who had no clear information about the job but was "asking some questions for the hiring manager" who was on vacation.

    Despite the interviewer having no clear understanding what the position was, nor how my background fit, we had a pleasant conversation, and she was professional. Not sure how you can screen someone in or out not knowing what the actual job function is.

    When compensation came up it was clear my current compensation was above the top end of the range for the position so I moved on. I asked to be informed in either case, but had very little reason to proceed. I never heard back from anyone and had forgotten about the phone screen.

    Fast forward to August 2017 and I just received a form email stating they've pursued other candidates. A minimum of 6 months later and a form email? How broken is the hiring process here? It's a good thing I have a job. How disrespectful is this to candidates?
