    HR was completely unprofessional. Was booked for a super day where the interviewers never showed up. Eventually had three generic interviews from consultants outside of my subject matter expertise.

    Eventually got an offer, but salary package was not in line. Waste of time. What is the point of HR?

    Felt like I took a time machine 15 years ago.....
