I interviewed at General Mills (Minneapolis, MN)

Interview

The HR person sent me an email to set up the first screening interview. On the interview day, 5 mins before the interview, I got an email to cancel the interview because the HR’s dog was sick. I tried to reschedule the interview several times through email but never got a response. I then followed up by phone two weeks later and the HR told me that she completely forgot it and it was her mistake and she will send my resume to the hiring manager. I finally received no interview callback at all and got a rejection through email a week later. The HR person was very disorganized in their selection process and failed to treat candidate with respect.
