    IT Support Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Burbank, CA
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Hays (Burbank, CA) in February 2020.

    Interview

    I am pretty thankful that I did not go forward working with Hays for a recent contract.

    Imagine a pushy used car salesman going to the effort of emailing you directly and telling you youre not qualified for a rate (which everywhere else seems to match or offer). After recent health issues and a really low rate, I decline a offer and was met with a passive aggressive personal email. Completely unprofessional. I had a uneasy feeling from day one and I am really glad I didn't go with this company.

    Don't believe them, there are plenty of people who will pay you what you are worth. They just want to pocket commission.
