    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Chicago Symphony Orchestra (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    The interview process felt very frantic. Their HR person called me twice at the very last minute and wanted to schedule an interview basically as fast as possible both times; even knowing that I was currently employed and that was logistically hard to do. But, I made it work, taking days off and booking last minute transportation, all at my own and significant expense. After all of that, they rejected me with a letter in the mail, which felt impersonal, cold and out of touch with how they had previously communicated.

    Interview Questions
