Recruiter sent me a job at below my current comp. I politely declined. She asked how much I wanted. I responded. She said I should consider aiming for lower. I got an offer for more than what I wanted, applying by myself, not through any recruiter. Like, who does she think she is to judge whether how much I’m worth? Lol

Haha, well, I’m always polite — more friends fewer enemies. She did put me in a process with a competitive place that pays extremely high base and is stable. But bonus upside is lacking, and since I’m young I’d like to go get the upside. Still, that was a good opportunity I would consider when I’m older

I’ve actually had good luck with nice recruiters over the past year. Some have been dumb as bricks (ie robinhood recruiter) but I’d say all but one has been pleasant.

Maybe your salary expectation was too high or maybe the tone of your message reflects how you treat other people… we will never know…

I recorded the conversation and listened to the body language - he came across rude from the beginning. I’m acting up a bit on the app however, I maintained my composure during the call. It was several times he literally made rude comments.

What did he say that really ticked you off?
