    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at GENBAND in August 2014.

    Interview

    I was contacted after applying online for a lead sales position. The initial interview went smooth, with the basic questions about myself and background. The interviewers were not HR or a recruiters, they were the regional sales VP's.

    The first round of interviews went great, and it seemed positive. We exchanged emails after the first interview and I was told I would speak with an SVP. Two and half weeks passed and I was asked to meet a VP of sales at the airport, since this person was on a layover in my home town.

    We sat down over coffee and had a great second interview. This person had to run, so I picked up the check and they took off to a gate. Our conversation was basic, but had no real point other than a meet and greet. I got the feeling it was more to see what I physically looked like. Being a female in a lead sales role, many times it seems more about looks, than brains.

    The next day I sent an email and tried to close the loop on the job, since 2 1/2 weeks had passed and I'd had no indication if I had the job or not. I was told from the first week that they needed me to speak with the manager of sales.

    This manager had scheduled several phone interviews with me, but this person never called me. I requested more information and asked if I should expect an offer? I was told again that I would need to speak with this other person, and that they would be meeting this person in another week. Still no indication if we were on track or what if any progress was made.

    After weeks of the runaround, I sent an email stating I was no longer interested in their position. This person who was suppose to call me had reviewed my LinkedIn profile the same day they were scheduled to call me, but didn't. They had the time to surf the web, but not call potential employees?

    I figured out they were not serious, or they had a habit of treating candidates without respect. I didn't have any desire to work for this company, after the runaround and disrespect.
