    Evaluation Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at City Year.

    Interview

    I had a phone interview with the hiring manager, then an in person interview with a panel of other staff members, not including the hiring manager. They gave me the questions ahead of time, so I could prepare. I did not get an offer, and did not receive any feedback. Later I emailed the hiring manager and others who interviewed me because I was interested in a different job at the company, and none of them ever responded. Very rude and unprofessional.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked me to talk about my implicit biases related to race. It is an important topic, but they handled it with no sensitivity. The interviewers didn't offer to talk about the implicit bias training they had gone through, reveal any of their own implicit biases, nothing. They just wanted me to tell them how I was racist.   1 Answer
