    Interview

    Applied and a recruiter reached out to me 3 days later, scheduling a call for the next day. The recruiter never called and also did not respond to 2 follow up emails. I would not recommend going through the efforts of applying as the internal HR team is not ver professional

    It's fairly simple and nothing surprising, just an overview for your experience. The manager seemed unprepared to the interview, but I guess he was just trying to find a candidate that he would be willing to work with for six months.
