If you are really interested in a position and company and the recruiter is late or doesn't show up to the first recruitment call, what is your process to address this? I emailed the recruiter 10 mins after our call was supposed to start, asking her if she was still available to talk or if another time today was convenient. Any other suggestions?

I had this happen, gave 10 min then sent an email. Got a call 5 minutes later saying they lost track of time. Had a follow up email the next week and they forgot they’d talked to me already and launched into the initial interview questions so I had to remind them that we’d discussed all this and were following up to coordinate HM interviews. They hadn’t even submitted my profile to the HM. I cut ties.

Wow, thanks for sharing! Total brain fart on their end and poor form!

Besides an email was there a number? If so I’d give them a call as well.
Sometimes people get caught up in something and do not mean any disrespect by missing the scheduled time. However if they do not respond with an apology or at all, they do not respect your time. If they don’t respect it now they will not in the future, you dodged a bullet.

No phone number, it wasn't listed in their signature. I surely dodged a bullet there!

I had this happen to me once. I found their phone number and called them shortly after we were supposed to connect. I ultimately got the job. I thought it was an HR screen but it was my eventual boss. A period of time later, we got to talking and she admitted that she did it on purpose because it helps screen the folks who are most interested in the job…. She said she had to take her son to the dds and that’s why she missed it. I also didn’t know if it was due to a difference in time change from EST TO CST

It's an experienced hire for an SC role. I saw the posting is still open atm, and my guess is that the recruiting team is comparing candidates since competition is higher due to recent layoffs.

Thanks in advance!

Hey everyone! I’m just about ready to put in my 2 weeks with my current company. I’d love to work directly with this major company instead of through a consultancy. But my employment contract has some wording which makes that impossible for the next 2 years.
