    Receptionist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Worley (Houston, TX (US)) in January 2019.

    Interview

    In early January 2019, I applied for the position of Receptionist with WorleyParsons through their staffing agency called XXX. About an hour after I applied, a male recruiter called me to tell me that he liked my resume and that he would contact me the following week regarding an interview. Before we hung up, he asked me what kind of money I wanted. I gave him the number that corresponded with my 18 years of experience. Then, I gave him a number that was my MINIMUM (which ended up being a mistake on my part.) That conversation was fine, but my impression of WorleyParsons (and their staffing company) took a nose dive after my subsequent encounters with them.

    The following week, I was contacted by the recruiter, not with a request of when an interview would convenient, but with a SET date and time of when the hiring manager wanted to speak with me. This recruiter didn't seem to care that I was currently employed and that I might need to manuver around my current schedule. No. He just called me with set date and time and he didn't even ask if it caused any conflicts with my job or other interviews that I might have scheduled. That was red flag #1

    I arrived at the Receptionist interview on time, impectibly well-dressed and prepared to give detailed information regarding my 18 years of reception experience. The hiring manager asked me how much notice I needed to give to my current employer and I gave her a FIRM answer of "two weeks", which she didn't seem to have a problem with.

    After having interviewed and learned more about the job and the situation that the company was in, I contacted the recruiter and informed him I would prefer the high number that I gave him when he initially called he. This is a paraphrase, but he basically told me that all they are willing to pay was my low number and I can take it or leave it. No negotiations. That was red flag #2. I should have withdrew at that point, but against my better judgement, I decided to stay in the process.

    The next day the recruiter emailed me an unofficial job offer. He entered a start-date that was one week in the future. When I responded to the offer, I changed the date to reflect the 2-weeks notice that told the hiring manager that I needed to give.

    The day after that, I received the official job offer from the onboarding guy. It still had the wrong start-date on it, but instead of going back and forth about it, I just completed all of the forms and took my drug test at the clinic. I submitted my two weeks notice at my job, assuming that the start-date was a misprint.

    The following day, I notified the recruiter that the start-date on the offer letter from the onboarding guy was only one week in the future and that I wanted to be clear about my desire to give two-weeks notice to my current employer. His response? "We have you scheduled to start on January 28th. Let me know if you still want the position".

    I remained professional, but at that point, I had grown a little tired of his curt, "take it or leave it" attitude. From the very beginning, he acted as if my needs meant little to nothing. I responded to his email with a courteous and respectful request for some minor flexibitilty on their part considering how flexible and accomodating I had been during the entire process. Then he called me on the phone and stated that if I could not start in a week, they will have to go with someone else. Then he said, "It's not going to look too good for you to have to tell your current employer that you can't leave". (Yes, he actually said that.) I told him that I would not withdraw my two weeks notice and they are welcomed to call me if they change their mind. The next day, the position was re-posted on LinkedIn.

    I could have ditched my employer, but I didn't do it for 3 reasons.

    #1 - The pay was horrible, but I have never worked with a kinder group of people since I started working in 1993. I wasn't going to just ditch them like that. They didn't deserve it.

    #2 - Had I done what WP wanted me to do, they would have never respected me. NEVER.

    #3 - I don't like being treated like some kind of lowly peasant who should be thanking my lucky stars that WP decided to throw me a bone. No thank you. I am a professional with plenty to offer a GOOD company.

    I will accept full responsibility for assuming that the date on the offer letter was an error. It never, ever occurred to me that any reputable company would expect an EMPLOYED candidate would ditch their current employer (who was not mistreating them) without giving the proper two-weeks notice. Especially after I stated during the in-person interview that I needed to give said notice.

    I guess I've learned a very valuable lesson. But I also believe that I dodged a 357 Magnum bullet. WP is not the type of place that I would want to call home. And I'm glad that the true colors were shown before I embarked on employment there. I sent up a prayer for whomever got that job.
