    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at NWEA (Portland, OR) in August 2020.

    Interview

    Phone interview. Was told I would be contacted either way, and I received an automated rejection email. Position still posted as actively recruiting. 2 month temp position. No chance for hire. Was told I am overqualified but a good fit.
