There was a long time line involved. Received interest from the recruiter on 4/3, and finally had a phone interview with one (1) TCS employee on 4/22. Throughout the next 4 weeks all I heard was that TCS needed more time to evaluate the candidates.
On 5/6/2013 I was asked to be available on either 5/10/13 or 5/17/13 for a face-to-face interview, and that TCS would purchase the appropriate airfare for me. I scheduled the 5/17/2013 interview time slot.
I thought I would save TCS some money by driving the 10 or so hours round-trip to the interview, rather than TCS paying for airfare and a rental car. All I asked for was one night in a hotel and mileage reimbursement which would have been hundred's less than flying.
The face-to-face interview took place on 5/17/2013 as scheduled.
I filed my expense reimbursement form for hotel, mileage, and a meal on 5/22/2013 with both TCS and the recruiter .
And waited for an employment response and an expense reimbursement.
On 6/12/2013 I finally heard back from the recruiter "that although I had rich PLM experience, I would be over qualified for the role as a Windchill PLM developer role they were looking to fill".
Apparently the role I interviewed for twice and the role they were truly looking to fill were two totally different positions.
And....... I'm still waiting for my travel expense reimbursement.
