    Difficult Interview
    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Children's Health Council (Palo Alto, CA) in May 2019

    Interview

    I really, really don't want to write a negative review because I love CHC and the work they do I have worked with people from there before, and have only heard good things, but these interviews were so disappointing and I feel like my time was wasted. After applying to a position online I got contacted by a member of HR for a phone interview to be interviewed for a director level position - this was my first question mark, I hadn't applied for a director level position and I definitely am not qualified for one. Then I had the phone interview with the member of HR, now I know screeners are common practice, but not ones like this, the HR person got on the phone, robotically read my resume back to me didn't have an answer for any of my questions about CHC, told me I was a fit for another position and that I would be asked to come in for an in person interview on Wednesday. Several emails later and the HR person forgets to schedule my interview. When Wednesday comes and goes she reaches out Thursday to apologize and reschedule, when I said I was only free next week, she said they needed to wrap up interviews this week, so I would have to come in tomorrow. I had to cut out time to come in, only one of the several people who were suppose to interview me were there, I sat down and it was pretty clear they had already chosen someone else for the position based on how they acted - the interview was really short as the interviewer really didn't have any questions for me, and I was taken a back when the interviewer asked if I would have time for this job. I left just feeling like I had wasted the drive down, I hope CHC does better in the future, their work is so important.
