    Routing & Logistics Expert Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Waste Management (Houston, TX) in June 2017.

    Interview

    Received an email from recruiter expressing interest in conducting an telephonic interview. After deciding the day/time, the recruiter did not called saying she placed me in her calendar for the next day. Next day again same thing happened she did not called. Upon asking I received a reply "Will get back to you soon".
    After few days upon asking I was notified that the "position was filled". Such a unethical and unprofessional attitude of employees. Never got a chance to prove my self because of recruiters mismanagement skills and not standing on schedule.
    A request to recruiter, we respect your time in return we expect the same. If you are providing a platform to any candidate kindly be professional and honest.
