    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Elementum in August 2018.

    Interview

    Probably one of the worst, most unprofessional recruiting experiences I've had. Each and every point of communication was either late, or rescheduled with little notice. Hiring manager was nearly 30 minutes late to our scheduled video call, and I wasn't even notified. I had to reach out to the recruiter and confirm it was still happening. Recruiter never followed up with me at any point in the process; it was up to me, at every step to follow up, expressing my thanks and asking about next steps. This was every. Step. Of. The. Way. Even after several rounds of interviews. After my last interview I was ghosted (didn't hear back from anyone for over a week). It took a third email, including a CC to the hiring manager, to finally get a response, closing the loop, saying that I was no longer being considered.

    In other words, horribly lazy and unprofessional recruiting! Your time isn't valued at all. I understand this is a startup and things move quickly; however, as a recruiter you are the face of the company and it's literally your job to represent the company in a positive way, and give a positive candidate experience, whether the applicant is hired or not. It was painfully obvious that this would not have been a good culture fit for me, as I actually respect the time and energy of others around me.
