Getting an Interview

- Application Details
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Active Network in July 2014.Interview Details
It was sort of a whiplash experience. The recruiter found me via LinkedIn, and was very nice. After my initial interview, it seemed the fit could be mutually great. I went through the interview process, which involved two cognitive tests (which had nothing to do with the skills required of the job), a personality test, and a round of interviews via video. I also completed a written test. The team I'd work with seemed great, and the position seemed like a lot of fun. The recruiter was on top of things, and updated me on the process. In all, that took about a month.
Then it got a little weird.
They made me an offer, but less $ than they'd stated during the interview process. I was also asked to relocate on a relatively short notice. The position could easily be performed on a remote basis, so if I were given a little bit more time to move, it would have been easy. I could also easily 'commute' or visit bi-weekly/as determined between cities a couple times until moving.
When I asked about details (such as, was there relocation assistance), the recruiter said she didn't know. Mind you, this was all supposed to be just weeks away.
The offer/hiring process felt rushed and I felt like a number. The recruiter asked me to, "let her work (her) magic," but the things she'd promise or offer didn't matter, as what came back was different and firm. It was as if she had no power to ask for anything, at all. (I don't think this was her fault. The directives came from what she called, "leadership.")
The actual folks I'd be working with seemed like awesome human beings, and awesome colleagues. But feeling like I was just a number so soon in the game threw me off.Interview Questions
