Bio not provided
DonaldWW has a point-it's a two way street. I have interviewed hundreds of people in my career and also been on hundreds of interviews and have had some awful experiences with companies I have interviewed with...here are a few:
1. I Was flown to Phoenix for a day of interviews with 11 people and then submitted a sample marketing plan per their request-and then the employer NEVER got back to me. I called them and told them I was no longer interested more than 2 months later.
2. Cleared my schedule for a morning of interviews with 4 people at this company-only one of them bothered to show up.They said they would re-schedule-but of course they never got back to me.
3. Same company as above (a brokerage company) asked me to come in for an interview on a Satruday for the convenience of their executive. he was wearing shorts, t-shirt and bare feet, spoke to me for about 10 minutes and acted like I was intruding the whole time. And guess what? They never got back to me
4. have had dozens of interviews where it was obvious the interviewer had not ever looked at my resume
5. Interviewed with a woman who was angry and acted like I was wasting her time becasue I did not have this one very specific type of experience she was looking for even though it was not in the job description nor was it on my resume or cover letter. (see #3)
6. more than once I have submitted online resumes-never received an acknowledgement but did start receiving spam from the company to the email address that was on my resume.
7. Filled out an extensive on line application and questionniare for a job at a University (my alma mater I hate to say) that took about 8 hours to complete and NEVER heard back from them-not even a courtesy decline letter.
With the job market the way it is now some companies just treat their applicants with contempt. i am a hiring manager now and I NEVER treat people this way!
11 months, 1 week ago on 10 unusual interview mistakes, and 6 that are all too common
