    Executive Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience


    Sourcer reaches out — says I look like a great fit and the hiring manager is very interested in speaking with me. Asks to connect for a few minutes. I respond promptly with a proposed time. The sourcer ghosts me and doesn’t respond. I follow up a week later and they say “Oh the hiring manager is meeting several candidates this week. If he doesn’t hire one, we will be in touch.” What a joke. Don’t bother responding to this place. They’ll just ware your time. Very unprofessional.

    Interview Questions

    • Didn’t get this far — just astonished by the lack of professional conduct by the sourcing team. In such a competitive hiring market, I can’t believe they’d operate with such a negative candidate experience.   Answer Question
