I applied online. I interviewed at Assurant (Kansas City, MO (US)).
I was contacted via LinkedIn from a consulting HR professional. They said they liked my analytical experience and had a role in Atlanta which is local and encouraged me to apply. Finally we got to an initial phone screen that went OK but had red flags. One red flag was that the "vacancy" didn't yet exist as someone was currently in the job but would be leaving the country. They didn't say who was leaving the country or when or if they would be also leaving the firm with their departure. This aroused suspicion the job was never going to result in an offer. I found out there would be an "introductory" call with a Director. It was ambiguous if it was a phone screen or phone interview or actually an introductory call. I found out also the Director resides at the Kansas City, MO office. Always a red flag when they have a local job but the interviewer is 1,000 miles across state lines and they have you talking with a director you won't be working with locally. I should have pushed back and said I wanted to speak to someone local because the job was purported to be local but went forward anyways. The phone call didn't go very well. The interviewer made vague references to his team by first name only and were not on the call. These are people I knew I would never meet. He mentioned vague descriptions of their talents. He only asked me one total interview question. He also made vague references to working out of the Milwaukee office and that he had a house there. Not sure what those had to do with the job in Atlanta.
After this phone call I was given an excel based assessment. I spent 9 hours completing it and turned the document in by the one week deadline. Weeks went by with no response but they said the plan "still" was to set up a phone call with the Director and peer level employees would be reviewing my work on the call.
Finally, when asking for another status update, the human resources consultant said the "team" has decided to cancel the opening and re-create the opening as a manager level position. All they did was use me as a tool to determine what demand there is in the marketplace for working at Assurant and calibrate a new completely different manager level position. The job was bogus. They were using tactics all along I've seen before. They don't have anyone in place that can execute.
