Advice to Management
Continue to embrace all aspects of diversity.
I applied online. I interviewed at National Recreation and Park Association.
Met with HR manager, hiring manager and another member of team for about an hour. Was told I was going to be brought in for another interview to meet additional members of the team. They kept reiterating "fit" was important to them. As it is to me, so I was surprised to get an offer after an hour interview. I asked if I could come back in to meet more of the team. Was told no. Asked if I could have an extra day to decide. Was also told no. Declined offer.
