    Corporate Relations Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tampa, FL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at United Way (Tampa, FL) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Phone interview went great, was told I'd be contacted n a few days for a second interview. After ten days I followed up with an email to schedule a second interview. The interview was scheduled within twenty minutes of my follow up email. Second interview went well. Was given two weeks expectations for a turn around time. Tried following up with the interviewer via email but no response. We are four weeks from my second interview. I got completely ghosted. Very unprofessional for a major non profit.
