I had applied for a community manager position in early August. After completing a brief phone interview a couple of days after I applied, I was scheduled for a 2nd in person interview with the regional manager around the end of August. After driving an hour from my home to complete the interview at the corporate office, I was informed the position I had originally applied to, had already been filled. However, due to other available, or upcoming opportunities that the company had, I still interviewed. The same day I also had a 2nd interview with a community manager of a community I thought I would have been considered for as I had expressed interest in one of the other positions that was available. After my 2nd interview I had followed up with both the regional, and community manager to say thank you for the interview. I received a response back the same day from the regional who then informed that following week would like for me to do a 3rd interview with another community manager at a completely different community that had no open positions. The manager who interviewed me for the 3rd time was very direct, and came off as if I inconvenienced his day (felt like I had to rush through my interview). It was definitely a complete opposite interview to the ones I experienced over the phone, with the regional, and other manager I interviewed with which was more pleasant. After my 3rd interview I had sent a thank you follow up to the manager. About a week later I had emailed the regional back as a general follow up as I had not heard anything back regarding the status of my application or after the 3 interviews. I still have not received a follow up, however, my application in their system still states "under review".
