    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Boston College (Boston, MA).

    Interview

    I went through a recruiter. I had 2 calls with the recruiter, then a call scheduled with the hiring manager which was cancelled 3 times. Then I was told they decided not to move forward. Then I was contacted 2 days later saying they would like to move forward and had a call scheduled with the hiring manager. I was asked to code a sample project (being a role for a coder). The project instructions were to create a "fresh and modern design". I'm not a designer, and the role was note described as a design role, so I coded it in a fresh way, but left the design as is. I was not asked to move forward after that because they were expecting a better design. So they got a free project out of it.
