    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    Applied online. Duration took approximately 9 weeks to receive a call from HR. I was asked to provide a date to schedule a 3 person panel interview over a conference call. When the time came for the conference call interview, the host was not at all gracious. No small talk. The host explained I had 30 minutes to describe why I'm qualified for the job...go! As I'm describing my experiences and qualifications, the host is counting down every 10 minutes until the interview was over. No discussion till the end of the 30 minutes. Not a good first experience with the City of Austin. Withdrew my application as this is not the environment I wish to pursue my career goals.
