    Application

    The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at University of Chicago.

    Interview

    Consistently bad experience. Considering how esteemed the University of Chicago is, it is particularly shocking how inept they are at recruiting talent. Interviewed first with a project manager - not someone in HR or talent acquisition. Weeks later heard back and was asked to have an in-person interview with the hiring manager.

    After the interview, was told by hiring manager that she would be in contact within a week. She wasn’t. Was emailed six weeks later by hiring manager saying the HR system would be transitioning and that if I received an auto rejection letter, I should reapply via the new system (?!). She again promised to follow up within a week and didn’t.

    I emailed the hiring manager a week later and received a response email from the project manger (?) telling me to reapply via the new system if I was still interested.

    I’m not and I didn’t.

    Unsurprisingly, the role is still open and there are always jobs available at this place. Seems much more a bullet dodged than an opportunity lost.
