    Customer Service Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    Recruitment needs to follow up with people like they say they will. If you get an email saying "I'll follow up later this afternoon :-)" wouldn't you think that's a good sign? Well 4 emails and 2 voicemails later I got nothing. No one else to contact. Recruiter didn't seem too organized when I went in for the interview (didn't even have a business card to give another candidate). On top of that, I know others who got hired who have heard back from this specific recruiter.

    A simple yes we'd like the continue or no at this time we feel you wouldn't be a good fit for this role would have been great but, nope.
