    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Defenders of Wildlife.

    Interview

    So, the HR guy was nice, but one of the people I interviewed with was awful. She was reading and responding to her cell phone throughout the whole interview. I'm sure she wasn't looking at my resume because the hard copy was right in front of her on the table. She was so condescending. When I was telling her about my volunteer work she actually said, "Well this is a full time job, hope you don't plan on doing that work if you're hired here. The only other question she asked me, in a very patronizing way, was "what do you know about the legislative process?" Keep in mind I have an advanced degree in government! She didn't reply to my thank you email and no one bothered to tell me I didn't get the job. So unprofessional.
