    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at CommunityAmerica Credit Union (Lenexa, KS) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Had four interviews. First phone screen, then interviewed with VP of IT, then group interviews. Phone screen was fine, easy enough, and the VP interview was good too. She was great at explaining the company, culture, answering questions, etc. The group interviews were next, and I was meeting with the other PMs, and then two people outside of the department--one from their Help Desk and the other from Information Security. The first session was fine, typical questions and easy enough. The second session, though, with people outside the department, was not good. They couldn't answer many of my questions, even saying "we don't interact with PMs much during the year", but still felt the role was seen as a status-taker position...? Info security guy was doodling for some of it, acting bored, and the other person seemed to have an issue with my drive for success within roles and companies, and it was just a bad session all around. If they can't contribute to my experience and trying to understand if it's the right fit for me too, they shouldn't be a part of the process. Best I can tell, they were there to gauge my leadership skills, that's it. I wasn't impressed with them at all, and that, for me, was wasted time and bad opinions. I knew after the second session I was out of contention, but also knew I could do better.

    After about three weeks and a couple emails checking in (on my end--they didn't keep me current on anything) the VP FINALLY responded with the typical "went another direction"...I asked for any critique and insight her team provided so I can better myself in the process and she wouldn't reply...really thought that was unprofessional, and made me glad I didn't get to pursue this one. Truthfully, after talking with the recruiter about salary, etc, I don't think they could've made a good offer anyway, as I started getting "there's more to our benefits than just salary" speech, which usually translates to "we hope you consider the whole package because we probably can't pay you what you're asking or what the value of the work is".
