A Cautionary Tale:
The Alaant Team Shares their Recruiting Horror Stories!
On two separate occasions, we have purchased dress shoes for applicants because they showed up to the interview wearing sneakers.
We have witnessed candidates bringing so many strange things to interviews, this includes:
A candidate who was a great fit for the role with excellent references had an early morning interview. The candidate happened to be a new mom and had been up all night with the baby. She admitted she was exhausted and struggling to stay awake. The hiring manger was running late, and the appointment was delayed for about 15 minutes. When the manager went down to greet the candidate, she had fallen asleep! The candidate was mortified. Fortunately, the hiring manager had just had a second child and was very sympathetic. They had a great conversation over coffee. And happily, she still works there today.
Happy Halloween from the Alaant team!
