    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at New Alternatives for Children (New York, NY) in February 2017.

    Interview

    I was really excited about this interview. I want to say I truly believe (still) that NAC is complete and their programs look amazing.
    Before going to any interview I like to do a deep research , and I was really surprised that the person of the interview have an open social media , and not only that, this person make comments about the people who apply, and not truly nice ones. Lets move on! I tried to forget about that and give my best, and the interview was easy going, interesting. But when this person asked me if I had any question for them ( Yes I did have, I look communication in everything) I asked about how they manage bad reviews of ex employees. He look upset and with no idea of what I was talking about ( Im so sorry glassdoor, I love you). From that moment on the whole interview was different and I knew that the job was not mine. It was my fault, its was way too early to constructive criticism , but I want to work in a place where is good to discuss this thing from minute one without being judged.
