Interview

The interviewer was 20 minutes late to the Zoom interview that they had strongly suggested I take as very formal. I reached out by email and the interviewer asked for my cell number. He called me and interviewed me for less than 10 minutes while paying attention to other things and asking me to hold a few times. I then followed up with the contacts I had by email 3 times to ask how the process was going and if there would be any next steps, with no response. I was informed i was no longer being considered 3 months later.

Interview

Very simple, quick, but sudden phone interview. They did not schedule at all, just called me randomly in the morning. The interview focused on my relevant experience, my ability to travel to the work location, and my ability to communicate via writing. It was difficult to convey that last one over phone.
