    Easy Interview
    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at WM (United States)

    Interview

    Recruiter reached out via phone and called me to schedule an interview with the talent advisor. I returned call multiple times and didn't hear back. Eventually texted the number and received a response that the talent advisor was out of the office unexpectedly so it would be a bit before they could schedule. Again I heard nothing for a couple of weeks, so texted again. Received no response. Then got an automated message that I would not be moving forward - after I was initially contacted asking for availability to move forward.
