    Technical Recruiter Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Open Systems Technologies (New York, NY) in March 2018.

    Interview

    I was scouted out at a Career Fair and advised I would be a good fit for the Technical Recruiter. The two HR ladies took my resume and I receive an email approx 2 weeks later. The email thanked me for applying for the position and asked for an appropriate time for a phone interview. The phone interview consisted of basic questions about my present employer and about myself. During the phone call I was asked to come in for an on-site interview. When I arrived no one was at the office initially. I was told to ask for the receptionist and I will meet with the Chief HR lady. The receptionist and Chief HR lady was not there so I interviewed with the owners son and another owner. The interview was what many discussed. It was un-prepared and they asked me the same questions in different ways. The interviewers did not take notes and after the 2nd person he said I will see if anyone else wants to speak to you. No one wanted to speak to me so I was told that is it for today and to follow up with the Chief HR lady. I felt the interview should have ended with me speaking to HR especially since I was told this is who I would meet with. I followed up with a thank you email and rudely never received a response.
