    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Yale University.

    Interview

    What a circus.

    I was brought in, no less than 4 separate times. Meeting with all group organizational levels and recruiters. And each time I was there, each person talked about a different position.

    One interviewer asked, “So what position are you here for?”

    It was like Ground Hogs Day every time. A waste of time, each time.

    Either the group wasn’t aligned on the search and/or they are woefully out of sorts My guess is both.

    Eventually they passed on me. But that’s because

    I had to call a few weeks later and find out for myself. I was told the decision was made a week
    prior to my call, just no one ever told me.

    If the interview process was an indictment of how the group is managed then a land mine was side stepped.

    Poor form Yale.
