    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Olson (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter after applying online to set up a phone interview. The recruiter must have gotten the date mixed up and called a day before our scheduled time while I was at lunch, after which I then re-confirmed with her that we were indeed scheduled for the next day. Then the next day comes, and I receive no phone call at all this time and no response to my followup emails too. Very unprofessional.
