BrainLAB is a company that is obviously very young and perceives themselves to be very progressive. They also are very short on manners.
Over the course of three days, I interviewed with seven different people both in Westchester and in Germany via the video conference (of which they were quite proud). My top-notch references were called and interviewed at length. They reported back that the HR Manager seemed very positive and pleased. Having been a school teacher, my background has been checked numerous times so I know there were no incidents there, I have a perfect work record. As I left the office, the Director of Ops dashed out of his office to greet me and shake my hand. I had interviewed with him earlier, and he obviously remembered me.
I then received, via email, a standard, three line reject letter. No phone call, no reason for the rejection. I was stunned. When I requested feedback I got no response. I could see that type of interaction after a single interview, but after three trips and interviews with seven different people?
Frankly, I was worked over and my references were inconvenienced for no benefit to anyone but them. BrainLAB is also the only company I ever interviewed with that did not give out their benefit package information. Perhaps that was a large red flag that I didnâ€™t see.
All this is true, and Iâ€™m putting down my name. If BrainLAB wants to dispute it, they can contact me and perhaps Iâ€™ll get my feedback. And by the way, BrainLAB, my old company had their video conferencing over 10 years ago. Itâ€™s really not all that.
