You misread that. The exact wording was "for an initial 20-minute screen interview at our office". We were asked to select from a couple 3 hour blocks within which we would be given a 20 minute slot.


I think it's different if you're not from C/N.

For those of you who had the screener, any word yet? Getting a bit anxious here lol. Thought my screener went well, but it seemed like they were screening a ton of people (two people every twenty minutes, about 6 hours total in the day?). And that's only on Wednesday, don't know if there were other screener days

My interviewer told me that the hiring committee will be meeting Monday afternoon to discuss candidates, so I imagine we won't hear back until Tuesday or maybe even Wednesday.

any idea what callback to offer ratio we can expect?

also, how much does their desire to have students from each school play into who they pick?

Do you know how long after the callback they extended the offer? Also, did your friend have and inform them of a different offer that was expiring?

I know this person. It seems they extended the offer within hours of the callback. No competing offers at the time as far as I know.

Hmm maybe they have school quotas and were already done interviewing people from that school?
