    Easy Interview


    The first interview was great. There were cookies and refreshments. The second interview went well also and I was promised a response by that Friday. I didn't hear back on time, but later I was asked for references(emails were mandatory). The recruiter became bothersome because she didn't hear back asap(one reference was in vacation and the other sick)and was asking me to basically do her job! The final straw is when she began asking me questions over the phone thinking I was a reference. Then she proceeded to ask me if I was interested after stressing the fact that she didn't hear back from everyone. Afterwards, she told me numbers only are acceptable(I could have provided more references up front)! I didn't follow up with additional/corrected numbers. The lack of professionalism and lower end compensation aren't worth taking a basic phone job.
