    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at HBO.

    Interview

    A recruiter reached out to me regarding the role.

    One of the worst interviewing experience of my career - can echo the other negative reviews as my process (or lack thereof) was similar.

    Recruiter reached out to me in regards to a role at the new HBO Max after "liking my background". Once I said I would be interested in finding out more (and following up twice), it took 1.5 weeks from the initial reach out to receive another reply setting up an interview time. We had a great phone chat, at the end of which he said he would be moving me onto the next round as I seemed like a great fit. Fast forward several more weeks and radio silence. I'd follow up and hear nothing. Finally 3 weeks after the initial call, I receive a copy and pasted rejection (filled with typos, mind you) saying they have decided to pursue other candidates.

    How about don't reach out to talent only to ghost them?
