Typical recruiter

likefunny

Very typical of IBM. Highly disorganized HR. Don’t take it personally

IBM recruiters are awful

I replied that I was and when I was available but got no response. Followed up several times but still no response. I get that most companies don't hire this time of the year but I find this to be pretty unprofessional. Is this typical with IBM?

Hasn't been my experience with most companies. IBM is a well known company too. Wouldn't expect that from them.

Typical of recruiters, never had that experience at IBM though, they were super eager to make a connection and fast to schedule the interviews...

I had a really bad experience with bluewolf and HR especially. They promised me a certain salary range in the beginning but after all was said and done an offer was extended bur they were about $15,000 off of what was originally quoted. The interviewer was also really rude and condescending.

IBM is interviewing now but no hire date till beginning of the year. Just interviewed with them and took 2 weeks to setup another interview. Be patient I guess.

No for IBM. They’re in the news a lot of scandal lately. They laid off thousands of employees, who all magically happened to be over 40

Ladies, I have a dilemma. I know the choice is ultimately mine, but I wanted some input. I met my current boyfriend through my cousin and he lives in Chicago. The plan was for me to move to Chicago in the next couple of months. I planned on just continuing my job with PwC. However, I was applying for jobs in NYC and just received and offer for a company I’ve always wanted to work for. I feel like I’m going to have to make a choice between my job and my relationship. What would you do?
