    Human Resources Generalist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview


    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Nitro (San Francisco, CA) in February 2020.


    Through an agency that wanted to place me at this company. The entire interview lasted (I kid you not), 15 minutes. I ultimately felt like I was being judged based on age. Nothing more since I have 20 years experience. I felt horrible after the interview and thought, what the heck was that I just came from. There wasn't many questions asked of me and twice was asked "any more questions?". I felt like I was asking all the questions and wanted to give them the opportunity to ask me some questions so I said no and they said "Thanks for coming in". And I was like OH........worst interview experience ever in my entire 20 year career. There were two people in the interview whom I would both work with. One NEVER asked me a question. Its like they bumped each others foot to let the other know "No Way".
