Advice to Management
Keep listening to employees and staff. Continue to value individual contributions.
I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Home Instead Senior Care (Little Rock, AR) in February 2020.
I applied for the position online and was contacted for a phone screening a few hours later. The phone screening happened on Monday, and I was invited for an in-person interview on Thursday. Before I continue elaborating on the experience, the minimum requirement for the position was listed as high school diploma and 1 year of general office experience. Thursday came and I went for my interview. 2 minutes into the chic chat, the hiring manager told me that I do not have the experience they are looking for. Mind you, I have a master's degree and at least 2 years of solid professional experience along with several internships with some Fortune 500. I was very confused to say the least. Afterwards, the hiring manager changed her words saying that they already decided to hire another person for the position, and she still wanted me to come in in-person so she could talk to me about another position that she thought I'd be a good fit for. I was like, okay...what is it? Then she went ahead of telling me the position which is an entry-level admin position that has the potential of stepping up to the position that I was interviewing for after 2 years or so, IF they have an opening then. The pay for the admin position is WAY below my expectation that communicated to her during the phone screening and my current position. The hiring manager was selling the position really hard to me, but I definitely did not think that my degree would be utilized for the admin position. Overall, the whole interview process was a huge waste of time for me. First of all, I spent hours preparing for the interview and researching about the company only to be told that they already offered the position to someone else before I was even interviewed. Secondly, the hiring manager could have told me about their decision on the phone, instead of having me to take time off work, drove to the interview site for a conversation that was less than 10 minutes. Besides, the hiring manager also made a comment that 'I'm too sweet to work in the HR position'. The whole process was extremely unprofessional and demeaning. I'd say learn how to write a solid job description first and learn how to respect your job candidates’ time and effort.
