    Application

    I applied through an employee referral The process took 3 months. I interviewed at Corbins (United States) in Jun 2021

    Interview

    I had first applied back in March for the Instructional Designer role. From the beginning, there was a lot of back and forth and follow-up on my behalf to confirm interview details. Once confirmed, I interviewed with the hiring manager and a team member. That interaction was a good experience and they both did a great job at not making the experience intimidating. The hiring manager talked about the possibility of another role they were developing and after thinking about it, I let him know I was interested in the new role. This role was the Program Manager/Coordinator role which entailed recruiting employees to go through an electrician's training program. After a couple of weeks of not hearing back, I again followed up with the recruiter and found out the department had gone through changes and the hiring manager was no longer at the company. I was asked to wait about 3 weeks and so I followed up again. Fast-forward to June, and Val, a new recruiter coordinator (and not the recruiter I had been talking to) reached out to "coach" me for the interview. She was very nice and adviced that for my in-person interview, I would concentrate on showcasing my organizational skills and the use of excel, She mentioned the new hiring manager for this role really wanted to know about how I would be able to use excel to stay organized. During our conversation, I asked her about using a CRM system to keep the information and told her I had experience in it. Val also mentioned she would send over interview notes that were not sent.
    The email confirmation stated how the building was under construction and to call/text once I had arrived. I did exactly that, and I was waiting outside in the heat for about 15 mins. Later I found out, that the recruiter could have had me meet at the building across the street. I was a little irritated because I was sweating and I just didn't think it was very organized or professional to have someone wait outside in the AZ heat.
    The hiring manager met me outside and we walked over to the other building where the interview would be held. To my surprise, Val the recruiter joined in on the interview (something I had not experienced before). The hiring manager was very nice and it seemed we were having a good conversation. Val definitely took up about 50% of the questions. She mentioned that she was concerned about me getting bored with the program using my previous job experience as a reason. She called my previous role not being the "glitz and glam" and since the role I was interviewing for would also not be "glitz and glam". I had never mentioned that my previous role was boring or that I did not like it, instead, she used her statements to manipulate the narrative and to conclude that I would get bored. Her comments made me feel awkward, and I did not understand why it felt like she was digging for reasons as to why I would not be a good fit. 45 mins later and the hiring manager had to leave before officially completing the interview.
    I has asked Val for feedback regardless of the outcome to which she did. She let me know I did not get the role and the person who did get it did so because she had CRM experience.
    Overall, Corbins Electric seems a like a great company, but their recruiting department needs work on making the process a seamless one.
