    Pros

    NONE - was never hired and lied to

    Cons

    director and chief eng did me wrong. Totally unappreciated and undeserved.

    Advice to Management

    Was offered a job and was told they would send the offer letter and I had 3 days to decide. The next morning I get an email stating they have decided to send offer to another candidate. WTF. Highly unprofessional and unscrupulous. How can you trust a company that operates this way and is in charge of childrens wellbeing? UNREAL
