Had an interview last friday, and I think it went pretty well. After talking with the people I was interviewing with indepth about the actual job, it turns out it’s not an electrical engineering position, but a manufacturing position, and one that I’m actually pretty qualified for. The job description I was given originally was very misleading. They had already interviewed 4 other people for the job, and I was their last candidate. They’re supposed to make a decision this week, and I feel pretty good about it.
The phone interview I was supposed to have Friday afternoon didn’t happen until Monday afternoon. We decided at that point that I should come in for an interview so that I could talk to some more people. It had been tentively scheduled for this afternoon, but as of 11 am this morning, I hadn’t gotten any confirmation of that, despite leaving several mesages with the guy. He called about 11 to let me know that he was having problems scheduling it, and that he’d try for tomorrow morning or some time on Friday. I’m assuming at this point that it’s going to be on Friday since I haven’t heard anything back from him yet. It’s a little bit frustrating. This is the second time that this company has given me the run-around on trying to schedule an interview. Based on some insider information, I have found out that their HR process really sucks. If I didn’t know that it was a really great comany to work for once you get in the door, I wouldn’t put up with it.
The other interview I have is still scheduled for tomorrow afternoon. That one is for a company that makes a lot of metal fab parts. Still a little confused/concerned about the management leaning of that one. I guess I’ll find out more about that tomorrow.
Here’s hoping that this whole thing is over soon.
Ok, I’m off to watch Bones.
