    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (Troy, NY) in March 2017.

    Interview

    4+ months with very little communication. Phone interview followed up with in person interview with various members of the department including Director, staff and subordinates. I was told I was overqualified for the position, but still interviewed. Took 5 weeks to hear about being a finalist and then background check and references. Followed up 4 weeks later with no returned email or call, heard back 2 1/2 weeks later with a VM requesting a call back. They never returned the call, only to find out my result online and a email notifying I was not offered the position. I was not able to attain any feeback since no phone call was returned.
