    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Grand Circle Travel (Boston, MA) in Jan 2021

    Interview

    Silly, silly "process". I was contacted by 4 recruiters (3 from the same company) about this position in a matter of a week. I went with the 1st one.
    1. Called by a recruiter.
    2. Received a cryptic email for a personality test.
    3. Received a cryptic email saying I wasn't a fit.

    One of the weirder experiences. A company that does a go/no go decision based on a Personality Assessment is probably a place not worth working.
    Interview

    The process stopped in its tracks before it ever really got started.
