    Thank you for your review, we appreciate the feedback. It's great that you found flexibility working through Pulse and that we were able to quickly secure you a role last year. However, I'm sorry to hear about the issues you experienced with communication, I can assure you that this is not representative of the way we treat our candidates. If you would like to discuss your review in more detail, please email Myron.Jordine@pulsejobs.com. Once again, thank you for taking the time to provide feedback.
