I applied online. I interviewed at Alcoa

Interview

Very unprofessional. Scheduled an interview and confirmed the time with an invitation. Recruiter T.L. ghosted me. No call, no cancellation. I followed up with an email and received no response. A simple note to let me know I was no longer in consideration is apparently too much for the folks at Alcoa.

Interview

Fui entrevistada via telefone, marcaram uma reunião online e remarcaram umas 3 vezes. Quando foi possível fazer a entrevista foram super atenciosos e a conversa foi bem descontraída. Gostaram do meu perfil, mas quando falei da pretensão salárial esfriou o processo. Não deram retorno.
