Yesterday I received an email from a prospective employer that I sent a resume to. It requested a phone interview and provided a link to click 9n so I could select a day and time in an automated system. That was easy. The time I selected was for today at 3:00.

I waited by my phone for the call. No call came. By 3:06 I started getting worried so I reread the email that confirmed the appointment and it turned out to contain a small link and a PIN that allows you to enter an online meeting. So I quickly get dialed in and listened to the automated message that said I was dialed in but was the only person in attendance. I waited two more mlnutes before emailing the HR recruiter to let him know that i had been waiting. This was at 3:08. No reply. Makes me wonder if he was there but quit waiting after 4 or 5 minutes and we just missed each other?

I have never seen an online meeting used for a phone interview. They always call me and that was what I was waiting for. Who does that? I never saw the link until I looked closer but maybe it was too late.

Doesn't sound like anybody I'd want to work for...tech not people oriented.

Squire,
You beat me to it. Any firm that selects its potential employees via a "log in" to a phone or computer is skating on thin ice...the people they attract as well as those who manage the hiring are going about it all wrong. Too damned impersonal....you didn't miss a thing. Bux
