    Senior Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Interview

    I received a message from a recruiter that they would like to interview me but was stood up when it came time for the interview. I even rearranged my schedule out of convenience for the recruiter to get a new time scheduled. I received no communication regarding the missed interview from the recruiter. If you do not have the courtesy to inform a candidate you cannot make an interview, then you are not worth my time. I will not be applying to Western Union again.
