I recently recieved an offer from a small agency 2 weeks after having final discussions/interview. After receiving the offer and asking questions about specific fine print, I let the company know that I needed 2 days to consider everything as I had recieved another offer as well and didn't mention that I had seen some not so great glass door reviews. Within less than 24 hours the company called me and demanded an answer while also letting me there were other people in line (cont)

(Cont) and also that they needed someone immediately, which I am not quite sure why starting on a Friday would be preferred anyway. Nonetheless, I politely declined on the spot and let them know that 48 hours was not asking much considering I had waited 2 weeks for an offer and needed to also be professional with the other company that had offered me a position. Im disappointed that egos got in the way and that the company was trying to intimidate me into accepting a position without truly considering and vetting it. They made the decision for me. Young professionals- read the fine print and go with your gut!

You did good. This post alone just showed how many red flags that company had, aside from the bad Glassdoor reviews. If a company makes just the hiring process difficult, imagine working for them.

If only I was getting offered jobs :( but I feel you. A few days after my interview with a CD for a in-house agency, the CD emailed me saying to do this social media assignment. He said it was due the next day lol. He didn’t even ASK me. I straight up shut it down after that...major red flag.
