    Clinical Support Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chelsea, ME
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Spurwink Services (Chelsea, ME) in April 2016.

    Interview

    I interviewed with the Program Director. He really struggled to come up with interview questions and seemed unprepared in general. I asked a lot of questions about the job and the workplace that he couldn't answer, and I was eventually told to ask the other employees around the office. By the end of the interview, he really wanted to hire me, but not for the position that I applied for, just a regular administrative position that pays less. We kept in contact for about 2 weeks while he figured out what kind of position he was actually looking to fill, and eventually offered me two different part time positions that both paid less than what the original position would have payed. It turned out the original position wasn't even being offered at all and it was just a colossal waste of my time.
