    Interview Details

    I was hesitant about meeting with this company after a former colleague of mine interviewed there. Two days after her interview, she was berated by her employer (my former employer) and told that she was going to get fired for interviewing with another company - apparently one of the executives knows my former employer (who isn't exactly mentally stable) and told her that an employee of hers was interviewing.

    That said, I thought I'd give it a try and see what they were all about since I wasn't working with the aforementioned employer any longer. The HR person was definitely not on the same page as the hiring manager, lots of "miscommunication". The office is an old, gross building, not professional in the slightest. Everything is just thrown around and it's such a rundown office with stains all over the carpets that are coming up.

    The hiring manager was very nice to me, was VERY excited about the possibility of bringing me on board. She was moving forward before I could even blink - there were no questions of "if" I'd get to the next round of interviews. She wanted me pushed to the next round and made it very clear.

    Within a week, their tone changed dramatically. They were SO rude to me. I was confused, what was happening? I was being told different stories by the HR person and the hiring manager. Their emails and phone calls were just belittling and, again, they both said different things were happening and that's why there was a delay in the process.

    Come to find out, that same executive who told my former colleague's employer that she was interviewing (paragraph 1) spoke with my former employer about me. Like I said before, my former employer is not mentally stable - hence, me quitting. There is nothing bad she could say about me because I take a lot of pride in my work but anyone who knows her knows that she makes it her mission to destroy the careers of people who leave her company. Not one person has left on good terms.

    So, although the conversation I had with the hiring manager was great, this company only cares about the drama they can start with other smaller agency owners. I just wish they hadn't wasted my time and been upfront with me from the get-go. Had I known they were looking for someone with no work history, I would've gladly passed on the opportunity. They clearly don't want good talent or hard workers.
