Yeah of course. Just don’t understand how you tell candidates one thing and then another thing happens. It is what it is.

I know I’m the HR person… but here is what I’ve seen when this happens behind the scenes:

The hiring manager had someone in mind for the role or have fallen in love with another candidate, budget changes or a reallocation of headcount, or the recruiter/hiring team kept the req open too long and were screening people while someone was going through final interviews. And spoiler - the first one is most common, esp if it’s and internal move.

It doesn’t change the terrible experience, but they are likely frustrated too. Best of luck to you!!

You should go into the process with the understanding that recruiting can be a messy, imprecise endeavor.

True but it sucks because they generally expect that you as a candidate aren't messy or imprecise.

Does anyone work for Omnicell as a Clinical Trainer? I’m in the interview process now and communication has not necessarily been that great with it being seemingly rushed then with gaps and then being passed to other recruiters who asked me the same question and act like I should be further along in the process then having to get back to me because they need to talk to somebody else. It appears very disorganized but not sure if this is just an HR issue or if there’s a reason
