    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Matthews International (Pittsburgh, PA).

    Interview

    I should have recognized the signs during the interview, but being that I was so focused on providing proper/engaging answers that I didn't realize that I was interviewing for a position that was already filled (probably by an internal candidate or external recommendation). I was very prepared for the interview and the position would have been a lateral move for me, so I know that I definitely had or exceeded the required experience.
    I was blown off for my first phone interview- the recruiter canceled and then didn't respond when I asked to reschedule. Another recruiter contacted me later in the week to reschedule. She was very friendly and accommodating.
    I was then scheduled almost immediately after my first phone interview for a phone interview with the hiring manager (I thought this was a good sign, but I guess it was just a formality!).
    The phone interview with the hiring manager was off to a good start, I was answering the questions to the best of my ability and thought I did a good job of showing my experience from my current role, but then she started rushing me.
    The hiring manager made it VERY clear that there were many, many qualified candidates for this position, and that they would be sure to keep my application on file in case I didn't receive an offer. Finally, she cut me off during the time she gave me to ask questions. When I was in the middle of thanking her for her time and saying goodbye, she ended the call.
    I received an automated response approximately ten minutes later that they were considering other candidates.
