    Recruiter Interview

    Anonymous Employee in United States
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview
    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Oliver James (United States) in Jan 2021

    Interview

    I had really bad experiences with them. The individual I interviewed with, asked me to give them a rundown of my background and kept interrupting me and asking me questions, while I was giving them a rundown of background.

    It really felt like an interrogation rather than a conversation.
    Interview

    In addition, the recruiter that set up the interview asked how much I was making at my last job? In N.Y.S it's illegal for employers to ask that. Maybe the company needs to learn how to properly communicate with candidates from the U.S. before expanding into the U.S .market.
