    Negative Experience
    Average Interview


    I had three calls with recruiters and then never heard anything back even after emailing asking for status. I guess some recruiters don't understand the value of following up and how a poor hiring experience will cost them customers. They even spoke of how sophisticated their HR is. Thanks anyway, but I don’t want to work with you as your candidate communication does not meet my requirements. My first impression wasn't a good one!
