    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Children's National Health System (Washington, DC) in November 2017.

    Interview

    I arrived early because I was not sure where my interview would be held. When I finally found the location, I waited outside for 20 minutes, knocking on the door with no response. I sent a email and called with no answer. I was about to leave when finally the supervisor called me back.

    When I finally sat down for my interview, I noticed there was something off putting about the supervisor. She was not warm and did not smile. She asked me about a previous place of employment, which was not listed on my resume. This made me extremely uncomfortable.

    From the interview process, I could tell that the supervisor had her mind made up about me before she began interviewing me.
