I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Oxford University Press (Cary, NC (US)) in July 2018.
I was contacted via email by a recruiter several weeks after applying online for the position. He repeatedly referred to me in written correspondence using a nick name that I never approved. I interviewed at the Cary office in early July, however the recruiter was not present. He contacted me via phone the next day inquiring about salary expectations, as well as asking whether I'm currently interviewing elsewhere. The whole tone of the conversation was rather invasive but I took this as a sign of true interest. We agreed on the budgeted salary range and I was told I would be hearing back that same evening or the next day.
Fast forward a month, after one email and voicemail followup-up, I still have not heard back from the recruiter or anyone at OUP. This is by far one of the worst cases of "employer ghosting" I've ever experienced and many in my network agree. The overall level of unprofessionalism and improper communication was astonishing considering the recruiter has "over 15yrs of experience in talent acquisition" according to his LinkedIn profile. A simple rejection email would have sufficed.
If OUP's way of recruiting talent is this terrible I can only imagine what substandard work opportunities and environment they provide. Avoid.
