    Interview

    The Talent Acquisition reached out to me via LinkedIn. It was all smooth until I hit the second interview. I met with the TA again, then the big boss. The boss was a jerk, made me very uncomfortable, asked random questions that didn't relate to anything, kind of personal to be honest. Then they both said I would be coming in again for another round. Never happened. Completely ghosted me. Hate companies that do this!!!
