    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Save the Children (Washington, DC).

    Interview

    For an organization that does some fantastic work, I'm sorry to say that this was the most unprofessional HR experience I've ever had. My scheduled phone interview was cancelled 15minutes before it was scheduled to start. Two weeks later I receive an email saying that efforts were made to contact me with a request to reschedule... but I never received a call nor an email. All and all - just bad form.
