I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Amtrak (New York, NY)

Interview

I was contacted by a Senior recruiter on LinkedIn and we scheduled a call to speak. Afterwards he told me that he would move me forward in the interviewing process. He said he would call me within 2 business days to give me an update. Now 3 weeks have gone by and I have sent follow ups and this man has not responded. Recruiters are subpar with this company. Recruiters and hiring staff should be courteous enough to respond with a simple “We’re moving forward somewhere else.”

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Amtrak (Wilmington, DE) in Oct 2022

Interview

Process appeared genuine until I realized after initial introductions that the three panel members had all been employees for well of a decade or more and hinted that they had internal candidates for the role as well. I did not feel as though the process was truly open based upon the hereinbefore mentioned. Essentially, it was a waste of time.

Interview Questions
  • He panel rotated through 9 pre-chosen questions which had little to do with true competence for the position.
