Or maybe you interview with bad companies...I’ve interviewed with probably over 50+ companies. HR at least has the decency to email within 5 minutes prior to/after the allotted time to say something came up or it needs to be rescheduled. This company, along with FB, are the only two to have treated me like this. To not even respond until 30 minutes later with not even a sincere apology shows this company does not care about its people (which is consistent with other glassdoor reviews of their interview process).

Lol NOW they’re asking to reschedule 30 minutes after the time. How do I respectfully say thanks but no thanks? Like HR is supposed to be the best representative of the company. If they can even reach out first to say the interview is delayed and do it in a timely manner...what a joke.

One of my friends having issue in booking slot for Accenture interview. Whatever the slot he tries to choose always getting message like "Waitlisted (The slot is not available at the moment. We will confirm to you soon.)" . Even if he tries to book, it is getting cancelled. Same was informed to HR but not much help from them. How to get the interview slot confirmed. Any idea?

Had my virtual on-site for an S&O L3 role 3.5 weeks ago (NYC, 5 YOE). I haven’t heard back on a decision yet, and was wondering how long it typically takes? I also know that I was one of the very first candidates to interview for this specific role, and there are atleast 2 more people scheduled for onsites. Does the recruiter typically wait for all candidates to finish their onsites before communicating a decision? Or if I haven’t heard back yet, it’s probably a reject?
