Sounds like your contact didn't tell who they should have and now doesn't want to own it. I know that doesn't answer your question.

Yeah. I’ve been set to go awaiting final confirmation on freelance to start on a Monday and they email Sunday night at 10 to cancel. This kinda shit sucks.

If you can’t work those dates you can’t work. No question asked.

Agreed

Venting now but people need to realize this has to do with people’s lives/livelihood. This is a larger issue than forgetting to tell someone something. I hope they are never in this position.

Did you ever end up hearing anything??

At 5pm yesterday, got an email saying they shifted some resources around and there was no longer a freelance need. So not my OOO dates as the issue. Ya think they could have figured that out before interviewing folks? Pretty sure I️ dodged a big bullet is where I’m at today. Thanks for asking 🐠!!

Hi Folks Just wanted to share this experience with you guys about Radisys . I interviewed at Radisys with an expectation 40 LPA , I have 8+ years of experience and I am currently withdrawing 31.7 LPA. When we began with interview I strictly told them I want 40 LPA fixed to which they agreed and now this is how they offered 40 (pic attached). They talk about candidates wasting their time by negotiating offer on top of theirs and this what they do to candidates.
