    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at British Gas.

    Interview

    Recruiter hadn't read my cv and went ahead to let me know. Interview was fine except for that horrible start.

    Negotiation

    No negotiation. Bait and switch tactics used.
