Story time? 😃

What was the interviewer’s reaction? Story time! I could use it, been through a similar situation (minus the reaction) with a different company as well.

I suggest providing feedback to the recruiter on that experience. As an interviewer at Amazon, the customer (interviewed) experience is our number one tenant, and if the interviewer was not supportive and even attempt to save the interview then they feedback that this is not acceptable.

Have anyone done contracting negotiations before? I've interviewed for co A & B and co A extended an offer today. The offer does not meet my current salary. Co B's interview structure is 3 rounds and I've finished my 2nd round today. The recruiter mentioned that since I am a contractor my current salary is incomparable as they will provide benefits, etc. Is this true? I have 2 yrs of contracting HR exp from fortunate 500 co’s & OMW to get my SHRM-CP. Appreciate your advice in advance.

Down because I got some upsetting (work-related) news yesterday. I was up for promotion and did not get it, basically for my actual job that I have been acting in for over a year.

Colleagues—who I trained and mentored—did receive promotion and we will all be working at the same job, just them at higher level and pay. Contd.
