    Marketing Manager - Extended Studies Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 7 weeks. I interviewed at Boise State University (Boise, ID) in May 2020.

    Interview

    I applied online via Boise State's job portal the day before the closing date.

    I heard from the hiring manager about a week after that offering me a Zoom meeting interview a week after that.

    The interview panel consisted of the hiring manager and other colleagues in the department as well as someone I would be managing (I always find that a little awkward).
    At the conclusion of the interview I was sent a "strategic prompt" which was to create a 2-page executive summary based on reading a 24-page report on Some College, No Degree people. The strategic prompt was due 24 hours after receiving it. Because I already have a day job, I felt the assignment timeline was unrealistic. But, I did it - and I rocked it.

    I submitted my executive summary, along with a thank-you/follow-up/why I'd be great for the job note, and received an email from the hiring manager that it was received, and never heard from her again.
    I find it to be pretty insulting and rude to ask someone to do a big assignment in a short amount of time in the interview process, and not even have the courtesy to let them know if they are in or out.
    She did say something about how slow things move "you know how the State is" so, 4 weeks later, I emailed to ask if I was still under consideration for the position and only then did I hear from her telling me no.

    Just a crappy way of handling things, in my opinion. Ask a lot, and show not respect or courtesy.
