Was wondering if anyone else had the same experience or has come across this un-professional type in their job hunt?
So I see a posting online that I like and submit my resume to it. Next day I receive an email wanting to arrange a phone screen. I provide my ideal times and wait to hear back. A day passes...no response so I try emailing again...still no response. I try calling her number and get voice mail and I leave a message. A week passes and I still haven't heard back from her so I've given up on the opportunity at this point.
A month passes and I suddenly receive an email from her stating that the companies priorities changed and now they want to hire for this position again. This time we agree on a date and time to hold a phone screen, Halleluia!!
I find a private location to conduct the interview (I am currently employed and time agreed upon falls within normal business hours). I expect a call from her, don't get it. Wait another 5 minutes...still nothing. I try calling her and get voice mail and I leave a message. I also send an email reminding her about this meeting.
After half an hour she replies back apologising that she was stuck in a meeting and nonchalantly requests to try again 10 minutes later. I cannot because at this point I am back at my office and I suggested other times this week which do not work for her so we're trying to work out a schedule for next week. This is where we stand now, I sent the last email and haven't heard back from her since.
It's frustrating that the job itself is interesting but I have already been turned off by her flaky behavior. Shouldn't the company itself be concerned that good candidates could potentially be repelled by their gatekeeper who has nothing to do with the job and what the company stands for?
