I worked at Coremetrics full-time (More than 3 years)
Worked with a group of smart, dedicated and fun people
Competitor had bigger budgets
I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Coremetrics in April 2011.
I applied online and waited eons before I received a response. Upon receiving the response, I was told several times to make available for possible conversation. I made the times available with no success. I sent the recruiter several samples which prompted this detailed discussion but found myself being stood up every time I set aside time for the interview.
I made an executive decision and stepped away from this interviewer. I will not stand for this lack of respect and integrity to keep appointments. This is absolute disrespect and someone should teach this recruiter the basics of how to engage possible candidates. I don't care if your company is a part of IBM, who cares. Your credibility and integrity are your's to manage, not the company's to manage.
If you cannot show the core principles of respect, honor, integrity and keep your appointments then you should not be in a position to be hiring or managing for that matter.
Professionals like this give companies like IBM a bad reputation.
Reasons for Declining
The interviewer kept on canceling on me without notice (i.e., standing me up like an unprofessional newbie in the professional world) and I had enough. When you cancel on someone 5 different times with NO explanation, then you do not deserve to have candidates with integrity.
