I applied online. The process took 5+ months – interviewed at WSI (Kalamazoo, MI) in March 2014.
Applied online on their website job app section back in Nov 2013. Heard nothing but kept seeing the job posting. Finally contacted them and asked in March 2014 to check if I was being seen in their system. The lady told me, oh your profile needs updated. Then said when you update, give us a call for appointment. Did that, went in and seen recruiter. Waited 15 minutes to be seen then recruiter takes me to office and immediately says, this position is on hold and asks if I have a resume with me. She looks at it then says, well you are definitely qualified and they says call me in 2 weeks. That was it a whole 5 minutes maybe. Went dressed in suit and tie and had my portfolio ready, but that was it. Tried calling as instructed, tried emailing, updating etc, but no response. Meanwhile, unknowingly, my step son had gone in a few days after I did and had about a half hour interview and they actually submitted his resume to the client. He only wore a shirt, no tie and khaki pants. After a week he contacted WSI and they told him the client said he wasn't qualified enough. I am 58 and my stepson is 33. What this is telling me is that they are age specific in their hiring. Also says that they are looking for that perfect person that realistically does not exist. It is not that they can't find anyone with the skills as you commonly hear in the news.
- Only question asked was whether I had a copy of my resume. I handed one to recruiter, she took not even a minute glance and just said you are definitely qualified. 1 Answer
