If there is one thing that both internal and 3rd party recruiters can agree upon it's that it's always the hiring manager's fault. They seems to be the universal scapegoat. Geez, Amy blames one 10 times a day for something or other.
But, since we will probably never get a hiring manager masochistic enough to come on and get spanked here,
let me play one on the internet and you can fire away at me. Let me go first.
Recruiters (internal or external) are a bunch of whiny b words who think that all I have to do all day is answer
their dumb questions and give them feedback on their worthless candidates.
They don't realize that the fact I have an open req means I am working the job of at least 2 people.
I wish, just once, they'd say to me "Let's make a scheduled time each day week, every other day, whatever
is necessary so that I can plan for it. Instead of the helter skelter leaving of messages. And then they take it
personally if I don't call back!
Look, I spent an hour with you at the beginning telling you what I'm looking for. I'm willing to talk to you
furtheri if I feel you're getting it. If you are rehashing the same stuff and sending irrelevant candidates, I have
no time for you.
So act a little more professional. Show me that you are listening and I will work with you. Otherwise, step aside.
I await your replies (except that Valentino dude, he's scary).
