I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at FTI Consulting (Seattle, WA (US)).
It was the strangest interview I have ever experienced.
Since the job was for a remote position the interview was conducted via chat. The interviewer was in Baltimore, I was in Seattle. While I was interviewing with a real person the process was so impersonal that I did think I was chatting with a bot for the longest time.
What might have been a 45-minute conversation at the most over the phone or in person it turned into a 2-1/2 hour online chat.
Responses were slow and questions appeared to be copied/pasted by the interviewer. All boilerplate stuff.
I was required to respond to each of the interviewer's entries one-at-a-time simply to acknowledge that I understood each point. I was not allowed to ask any questions until the end of this process. My answers were clear and distinct IMHO.
When I was finally allowed to ask a few questions I received only one genuine answer. No additional information on the position was forthcoming. I have the impression the interviewer didn't know anything or didn't care to answer.
Brevity was the nature of the interview from their end while I was more verbose. I did well enough on the interview that they offered me the job. It turned out the position was for only 10-30 hours per week. I understood very little about the job I was interviewing for and only got a better understanding when it was finally offered to me. It was very much a mysterious job as well as the process. I very politely declined the job offer once I figured it all out.
If the interview was in any way indicative of how the job was to be processed not to mention the communication process then it was not for me.
I get that remote working and part-time jobs online may be a huge incoming wave of the future but this work style and seemingly soulless communication is not for me. I do indeed need a job but I must weigh the costs.
