Hard work, always busy, hard to take time off,
I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Saddle Creek Logistics Services (Lakeland, FL) in March 2020.
I have interviewed with probably twenty companies in the past few months, and this company by far has the most scatterbrained and disorganized recruiters I've ever encountered.
In March, I applied on LinkedIn, and heard back within a day to set up a phone interview. For the first twenty minutes, I felt like I had made a good connection, until the recruiter told me that I am not experienced enough for a Senior Director role. Considering that the role was three levels below a Senior Director, I reiterated that I had applied for a Manager role. The recruiter apologized, stated she had the wrong job description, and said she would like to set up a second interview within a week or so.
After almost two weeks, I inquired as to if anything else was needed from me. I got no response, and pretty much gave up. One week later, I got a one line email asking me what my availability was, and I gave multiple dates. About an hour later, I was asked why I had not taken the assessment. I apologized, and stated that I had not seen one, in which the recruiter then realized that it was never given to me. I completed it the same day, and notified the recruiter.
I made one inquiry via email a week after taking the assessment, and left a voice mail two weeks after that. I have not had any contact for almost a month now.
Unfortunately, ghosting and unprofessionalism is somehow considered acceptable in the HR business. This company takes both concepts to a whole new level.
