I have been working at BOLD full-time (More than a year)
It's a very friendly and welcoming place to collaborate and grow. My manager fosters a supportive environment and treats us with kindness and respect.
Some of the catered food for company meals was lackluster.
I applied online. I interviewed at BOLD (San Francisco, CA) in December 2020.
I have never had such a horrible and disrespectful experience as I've had with the BOLD recruiter. I applied to a position, and was pleasantly surprised to see an email from a recruiter rather quickly.
However, this was the content of the email:
Please look it over and find the top essential requirements that are highlighted in bold and underlined, and explain to me how your experience maps, or does not map, to each of them by using specific work examples as best you can. Please use work examples v.s. school projects or internships. Please use work you have done since leaving school.
When I asked if we could set up an interview so that I was also given the opportunity to learn about the role, the expectations and the company in general, or if I had to answer his questions via email the recruiter responded with two words - "the latter."
No explanation as to why I needed to justify my experiences and salary in an email, or why he was mentioning excluding school experience (as I graduated quite awhile ago, but school experience should not be negated for new grads).
I honestly cannot believe that a reputable business would choose to treat their candidates in this way. A simple explanation as to why he wanted to first proceed via email, or an outline of the interview process would have sufficed.
If this is the way a company treats potential candidates, I don't want to know how they treat their employees.
