    Easy Interview

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at BDS Connected Solutions (United States) in Sep 2022


    I had applied a few months ago for a full time position, but someone reached back out and said a new part time position had opened up, and asked if I would like to learn more about it. I agreed and they sent me a video, then we scheduled a phone interview for the very next day. The recruiter then went on to ghost me and did not call me the following day, or ever reach back out again.
