Not really. A lack of common courtesy and respect is about the brightest red flag there is imo.

Try not to judge them all based on this HR person but, wow, if ever someone needs to be out front and pushing great impressions its the HR folks. Chalk it up to a bad day but if it repeats with others then you’ve got a culture flag.

Consider it a gift. People should be on their best behavior during both sides of an interview. Clearly not a good cultural fit. You are better than that shit. Onwards and upwards. You’ve got this

Not that this is really acceptable behavior by anyone, but what was the title of the person in question? And would you be working directly with them?

Did this person now they were late? Was it a c suite or md type person? In my experience they are always late for everything

I had a Monday interview canceled Friday night after I reached out to them as the meeting was set a couple of weeks ago and I hadn’t heard from the EA again. Eventually was told the person was now in meetings so needed to reschedule to end of week. Didn’t get confirmation again until Monday. I haven’t counted them out yet but alarm bells are there.

@ACD--they gave no indication that they realized they were late. But this was co firmed and I accepted the invite I received from them with the correct time. Can't imagine they didn't know.

@MD--the meeting was with the VP of HR. So I wouldn't be reporting to them. Next stop would be with the senior leadership team.

Was it Amazon?

BBDO was horrible with this. I just stopped responding after it happened the third time

Work your ass off to get the offer, and then respond a month later to reject it. That’ll teach those sorry muthafuckas
