Well I don't think this job will be moving along any further, mainly because I think my talent acquisition contact has ghosted me(https://goodmenproject.com/guy-talk/what-saying-when-ghosting-hlg/
[rant]When I took the video interview last week, I was interrupted during the first question and accidentally submitted it. I thought, no problem, I'm sure this has happened before, maybe they can reset it or something. I email my contact to see if there was anything they could do, and get no response. Waited 24 hours and emailed again. No response. On the third day, emailed again and got a two sentence response..."Unfortunately there is nothing we can do. If you remember the question, you can provide an answer here and I will forward it along to the hiring manager."
Ok, do you want me to make my own video? Email a response? Not so helpful and a pretty curt response for what took 3 days to get a reply. Whatever, "Thank you for your help. I know you guys wanted this done within 3 days. Will finish right away and email you a video for the question for which I messed up. Best, PJM" No response. I finish the rest of the video interview questions, email my contact saying I finished and included a video response to the question I messed up as an attachment and asked her if she could forward it. No response. Give them the weekend, send another email asking her to confirm if she received my previous email, in case it got filtered out due to the large video attachment. No response.
I understand this isn't a high level job. I'm sure my contact is busy since it is a decent sized organization. I'm trying to give this person the benefit of the doubt. I don't need the white glove treatment or to be babied, but this interaction, or lack thereof, has left a very bitter taste in my mouth, and has left a black mark on the company as a whole in my eyes.
Am I right to be ticked off with my contact? Is this par for the course for larger companies? Am I just being a big baby? I've dealt with HR and TA contacts before, albeit at much smaller companies, and all have bent over backwards to ensure that the interview process ran smoothly for me. Interviewing is stressful enough, and I didn't take out hours of my busy days to set up an interview space and practice, just to be ignored by the person who is supposedly "assisting me in my application" (their words in their original automated email). Any advice? Or just let bygones be bygones?
[/end rant]Sorry for the long winded post, but I do feel a little better now getting that off my chest.
