Recruiter called me at a time when I said I was about to enter a meeting at my current workplace. I asked to reschedule it the following day and she agreed to call me in the afternoon... Following day came and she never called me at all. I made sure my afternoon was clear of any potential conflicts in order to ensure that I could talk to her whenever she called in the afternoon. I called and left a voicemail to follow-up and never received a call back regardless.
SAIT recruiters, please be mindful when calling your selected candidates as they are also BUSY individuals who cannot sometimes answer your interview questions when you INITIALLY call. It should also be common knowledge that you should also ensure you call the specific candidate back after agreeing to it, rather than waste that person's time.
I am rather disappointed by this phone interview and recruitment experience, especially since I attended SAIT years ago. The education experience was great, but I can't say the same for its managerial operations though after this experience. I was potentially looking forward to working and helping SAIT realize its mission and support for its students, but it looks like my efforts, skills, and time will be best used elsewhere instead.
