As noted with my previous post, I am looking for a new work opportunity.
About 3-4 weeks ago, I saw another offer from a company that seemed to be really ‘on the go’. I was very interested in this position, as they seemed to be a complete software house, and seemed to be looking for candidates on all levels. They also had a very detailed requirement spec which made me feel more comfortable at that stage.
I contacted my recruiter to notify her of my interest then.
Now, almost a month later, this company still has not been able to get hold of the person to ‘ok’ a time for my initial assessment. This has been no fault of my recruiter, as I have been pushing her. Her frustration is also quite clear.
This gets me thinking;
- What is going on in this company that a simple task cannot be done in ample enough time?
- Do I really want to work for such a company where there is clearly an enormous lack of communication?
I dont really care if they are a MS Gold Partner, or they are rated in the ‘TOP 10 Companies to work for in SA’, my initial impression of them is not a good one.
And not a place I would like to work.
I have told my recruiter, if they cannot get their act together by end of Monday, I will have no more interest in this ‘opening’ (if you can call it that).
More updates to come on Monday.
Regarding the other company I did the assessment for, they still have not come back to me with their ‘suggested solution’.
