Even though the position was a Sr Manager -- and I have 20+ years experience - I was given a "homework" assignment more suitable for recent grads and interns. If I was interviewing for CFO, would they have given me a math quiz?

I tried to answer in far more detail than was asked. After I was told I would not be moving forward, I politely asked for feedback Not only was I not given any, they wouldn't even respond to tell me it was against their policy not to give feedback (something I later learned from Glassdoor). Maybe I rejected because of age? Less
