    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Jewish Board of Family and Children's Services in June 2017.

    Interview

    They called me out of the blue, didn't bother scheduling a phone interview and we're beyond rude. An older woman called and introduced a younger woman quickly. Gave no overview of the position, no information regarding their titles and began rapidly speaking. It sounded like they were outside on a busy New York street with lots of background noise. The older woman said things like "You need to speak up" cutting me off with "Yes or No? Yes or No?" I was appalled by the lack of professionalism. I ended up cutting it short after I had enough with the condescending tone.
