Hi, I finished my onsite last week and recruiter reached out today saying we’re finalizing the interviews with candidates for the role , and should be in a position to make a final decision on who to progress with by end next week.

A recruiter reached out to me on LinkedIn a couple of days back. I responded that I'm interested and would like to learn more while passing on my contact number and time slots to call me. She didn't respond to that message but went ahead asking for my expected salary. 🙄🙄 After responding that I'd like to know more first before I can give out the salary range....boom she ghosted me.

Beware folks, There is an unprofessional lady HR in axtria
1. Will proceed for interview even if expected CTC is over budget just to waste your’s & interviewer’s time
2. Won’t inform you even if you are selected by the hiring panel in case any candidate currently being interviewed has a lower CTC ask & makes promises without being aware of what she can get on paper just to give lame reasons post 4-5 rounds of interview.

Ugh, I am four business days past my loop interview and tomorrow is five, which is their maximum number of days they said they would take to make a decision. I’m trying to be optimistic, like, if they unanimously didn’t want me they probably would have told me sooner. But who knows?! The waiting is the worst part, knowing if the time investment into interview prep was actually worth it.
