You’ve gone this far, might as well see what type of offer they put together to understand your market, but can tell them at that point that you’re not interested. If they reach out before they pull together offer them tell them then out of professional courtesy.

Well I know their offer is still not the best option since the recruiter gave me a band range and even that was 15-20k below market. Just more than what I am paid now.

Probably better to wait and let them make the decision re offer and then reject it - no need to burn any bridges for something that has a pretty easy out. Just don’t drag out the post offer process

Is it okay to email the recruiter to withdraw my application? Or wait until I get an offer/get rejected? Even if I got an offer, I still won’t accept it.

You’ve come this far, I’d wait out the offer to see what it looks like then politely decline. Director w bad vibe could be gone in a month who knows. Always keep a door propped open if possible.

What was the bad vibe?

The interviewer wasn’t mean or tough, just very straight forward. No interpersonal skills, etc. I’ve done a lot of interviews and that was the worst so far. I will be working under that person’s practice so most likely will be working close together.

Somedays, its just hard to find that energy to motivate my team! I am exhausted, disappointed, and wounded from dealing with big boys club day in and day out, and then to find that inspiration to get my reports and team going!!! Brutal... and to add to the fact that HR comes back asking that the team be more engaged! We are working longer than ever, zoom fatigue is real, and timelines inflexible....

I took a full time role after being assured that my freelance manager at the time would NOT be hired full time. Within two weeks, they took me aside to say, so, we’re actually hiring her full time, just wanted to let you know. I’ve bent over backward and contorted myself a myriad of ways to get this person to like me even though I wasn’t her hire. I used to be seated next to her and she would talk all day to me and ask me questions non stop to help her do her job. Continued...
