Dear Human Resources,
My answer is no. I am thankful for your honesty during the interview and for being friendly enough to make me feel part of a family I do not really want to be part of and here it’s why.
When I mentioned to a contact of your company that I had sent my CV through the website, their answer was: they are busy, private message the recruiter on Facebook for a faster answer. So, I contacted you and this is the summary of the process: test, call, interview 1, interview 2 and finally the offer.
The test. I really did my best. I proofread the text more than 10 times. I navigated through the website to make sure I understood well not only the issues but your company. Customer support service experience? I have it, a year. Relationship building? 5 years.
The call. It wasn’t made when we settled it would be. And when it happened, it lasted 7 minutes. The results you gave me: 3 in written and 2 in spoken out of a scale from 1 to 4. According to our conversation: your company takes the lowest score. My international certification of the language lasted 4 hours. Average level: C1. I have it in PDF and could happily send via email.
Interview 1. So far, among all my job interviews, you have been the most honest, open and enthusiastic recruiter I have ever met. I got lots of information that were very easy to understand: schedule, people, tasks, opportunities, visa. Enough to make my decision.
Interview 2. First, it seems the feedback wasn’t well communicated. Here, I got the impression you thought I would take the offer that wasn’t yet formally presented to me. Second, the conclusion from the interviewer, let me quote it: “you only care about money”. My answer to them: “I care about money. Several years ago I left my home and became independent. I have been living in Romania *smile and say: another continent* for two years and I have to think of my income. Does the money have to do with my decision? Sure. Is it the only thing? No. There are a series of things I will consider and these interviews are part of it.”
The offer. The University of Lille 3 accepted me for a master in communications for public organisations, the interview lasted 1 hour and a half, *clears throat* in French and by French interviewers. Today I wasn’t asked and neither had the chance to talk about my experience. Is it that I wasn’t required to have any? The salary offer was not good, you were right about it. And for as much as I tried to find a reason to take it, I just couldn’t.
There are a few things I can remember you said about/to me: you are pretty, you are a great candidate, your language level must be better than the score you were given, we don’t pay good, it’s a nice environment, and nice to meet you.
In conclusion, my answer is no.
