Interviewed for position in accounting (Former Employee) – Windsor, ON – 17 January 2017
I've recently interviewed for an accounting position with Gates. I've been waiting to hear back from them and see today that they have reposted the position. They did not contact me to let me know I was no longer in the running.
Gates Management, if you are reading this, please give candidates the respect we deserve. Follow up with the candidate after meeting with them. We know you are very busy but we have taken the time to meet with you and some of us took the extra time to send a post-interview thank you. Interviewing to fill an open position is part of doing business... You would get back to a customer or supplier!
Please understand that I am not bitter about not getting the position, there's plenty of others to choose from with my skill set. I am being particular about which company I want to work for and chose to apply to you because I viewed Gates to be a reputable, solid company. However, I have now lost a great deal of respect for your organization.
I would have rated all zeros but that is not an option on this site.
