I feel like a complete fool. A lady called to schedule an interview for an HR position. Because I was tied up with business I did not have time to "Google" the company. I was told to dress "business professional" (why wouldn't I?) When I arrived I was asked to complete a form, give them my resume and a list of references. When she called me into her office, she asked a few questions of my background, etc. As time went on my radar went up when I asked about company information (which she wouldn't give me), the odd interview times, and the lack of specifics regarding the position itself. She then said "congratulations you've made it to the next round!" Everything about the interview felt "wrong". She gave me a test to fill out and then scheduled me to come back the next day.

Needless to say, I went home and immediately "Googled" the company. I hit the Ripoffreport.com website and saw all the stories of others who had been equally duped in the same way I was. Everything right down to the one former recruiter's apology to those who she had fooled. I was appalled at the hiring methods by someone who claimed to be in HR. An ethical HR person would never set a human being up on such a "bait and switch" tactic. She and the company should be ashamed of themselves. Who would be proud working for them?

Should I have done my homework first? Absolutely yes. I failed to research them prior to going in for the interview. But this type of hiring practice is deceptive and immoral. It sets up people weaker than I for a huge fall.

Needless to say, I called the lady's phone and left the message that if indeed she was interviewing me to sell insurance, then I wanted nothing to do with the process. And if I was wrong, then please call me back and we can talk about it. So far, no phone call.

On behalf of real Human Resources Professionals, I apologize that there are people like her posing as HR recruiters who in fact are knowingly being deceptive and using unethical hiring methods. How sad in today's world that companies have to do that.
