    I was called on a Thur night around 8:15pm.. Typical recruiter talk about how much resume was a good match for some position they were trying to fill and stressed they were looking to fill it really quick. Told her I'm interested and call me back the next day. next day we talked for an hour about the role, she was going to pass my info up to the next level. Following Monday had a call with the next level and all went well, next lady was going to submit my profile to company. Was told that the lady submitted my profile and I was going to have an interview following week. I kept emailing for updates and leaving messages for updates, got very little/late responses. 2 weeks later was told that the position was closed, no more explanations.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Datalink.

    Interview Details

    The Hiring process was too long and drawn out, Interviewed 9 different times some with the same people more then once. Each Manager including upper management had a different expectation of the position.

    The Salary and travel requirements were much different then the job posting once the interview prpcess began. Salary expectation was lower, and travel was much higher.

    Interview Questions
    • None of the interview questions were difficult, it was very frustrating to hear different expecations of the postiion from different managers. Received a verbal confirmation from two different managers i had the job, later to find they changed the job requirements.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    The Salary and travel requirements were different then the job posting, company kept wanting to have more interviews with staff to justify the salary for the position
