    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at BuildDirect.

    Interview

    I was approached by a recruiter from their company. I replied back, agreeing to a telephone conversation. Did not receive a reply from the recruiter until I followed up again. Eventually, we fixed a time for a conversation but the call was cancelled at the last minute by the person, citing "I am super busy". We fixed another time for the next day, did not receive a call. Followed up with an email but no response from the person.
