    Content Strategist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Charlotte, NC (US)
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Cedar Fair (Charlotte, NC (US)) in June 2019.

    Interview

    I applied about 2 months before I received an email about setting up a phone screening with HR. The screening was pretty simple. She reviewed my background and reviewed the background of the role, and why it was available. However, I had some sketchy vibes from her when we discussed compensation. She asked how much was my base pay and if I made a bonus. This is something HR reps are not actually allowed to ask candidates. She then told me it would be a stretch to get what minimum I was asking, then reviewed why I couldn't get that much. I know what I am asking, and with my background (experience and education), I was within industry standard. It was a bit of an uncomfortable conversation after that. She asked where I was with my job search, if I was interviewing elsewhere, or if I was close to an offer. It didn't seem that would be appropriate to ask candidates.
    That job seems great, but if they are asking for someone with 2-5 years experience, they shouldn't expect a low salary. They also shouldn't ask what someone is already making, just what they are looking for.
