        Health insurance isn't too expensive


        Impossible to get another job at VCU if you already work here as they require 3 contacts including your most recent supervisor. So if you work in an office that does not have a lot of staff members, they will all know you are looking for another job due to this rule. Pay is well below market rate especially for coordinator positions. PTO is grouped together so there is no separate sick leave, bereavement leave does not exist. My office is so short-staffed I can't take off work to utilize the only benefit worth working here for.

      Interview Tips

      Feel free to post any interview questions you might be asked and I’ll help you compose an effective response :)



      Can anybody share their experience of interviewing at Yelp for a data scientist position?



      I have gone through several interviews (4 so far) for a position within my current company. I would say the interviews were good but I can’t tell if the interviewers were just being polite as I am an internal candidate. HR informed me they will share feedback and “potential next steps” in 10 days as finishing 1st round w/ others. The word potential led me to believe I am being silently rejected and they are waiting for the process to be over to tell me they have chosen someone else. Thoughts?

      I finished third round of interviews but realized there’s an experience that isn’t on my resume (since it’s not directly related to the jobs I’m applying for) nor did I mention it in the interview process, but it would actually be great for me to leverage and demonstrates a relevant skill for the role. Is it worth emailing and dropping a quick note about it, or should I leave it?
