Has anyone experience a total lack of organization when dealing with Progressive recruiters?

I was supposed to learn whether or not I got the job 2 weeks ago and my recruiter still says that my paperwork from the interviewing managers has yet to be turned in. Also, he barely ever calls when he says he will.

WTF????

I didn't experience that at all...

I tested when I was supposed to, I had the phone interview on the day and time that I was scheduled for. I had the in person interviews with their managers right on time and I was told that I would hear something in about a week. I heard from the recruiter exactly one week after I was interviewed. I never had to call them or anything. If I did have questions, I usually just contacted my recruiter by email - her replies were very prompt.

It was an excellent, although drawn out, hiring process.

I also didn't experience that at all. It WAS a very lengthy hiring process with Progressive, but they have fantastic people and I understand why they're "extra critical". I had a discrepancy on my background check, but still, the total time it took from application date to hire date was only 4 weeks and that includes me fighting the discrepancy. I start November 30th and I absolutely cannot wait!! Good luck to you!

I have experienced lack of communication, etc. I was told to reach out to recruiter and have although no return emails or phone calls. 2 way exchange? I went all the way through all interviews. Did well and have not heard 2.5 weeks later. On the site where you can track your status, there is no update. It still just says on-site interviews.

I'm in the same boat as you. Have you heard anything yet? Just wondering how long it takes.

It should not take that long, that is called disorganization. I was called in the evening to let me know that although professional, etc (Note: I have been in claims) that they were not selecting me because they need someone whom thinks fast and makes decisions fast. I asked for an example of something in my interview that would suggest that I cannot do that as I have worked in multiple positions all of which I had to critically think and be proficient and fast. It didn't make sense. I did receive a candidate experience survey and did not rate them highly as there was complete lack of communication on their end, etc.

Thanks for your response. I'm sorry about your negative experience. I don't understand why they would call to tell you that you didn't get the job. Most companies will usually just send an email. I received a call from them today, but couldn't call back right away. She said if I didn't reach her today to call back on Monday because she'd be out until then. I thought maybe they were going to make an offer, but now I'm wondering if she's going to tell me I didn't get it. Guess I'll have to wait until Monday to find out. Great.

I just had an in person interview a couple of days ago. At the end of it they said I probably wouldn't hear anything till the end of next week, possibly longer. Not sure why that would be. I have already done the background check. Unless their interviewing like 20 applicants, I'm not sure how if would be that difficult to make a decision about who they want. Im guessing it may also be part strategy on their end to see who all will stick it out through the end of the process. If you have other offers on the table, they wait to see if you will hold out for them, but that is a big gamble, unless you currently have a job you could stick with past all this. Good
Luck to all!

I'm in the same boat. I made it all the way up to where the online status says on site interview and the position still says active (accepting job submissions) but I have not received a call or email for an interview yet. It's been 2 weeks already and I'm going crazy! Any updates yet???

In most situations like this, no news is not good news..
