I have recently applied for a job at High-Tech Bridge, a startup based in Geneva, Switzerland.
I was contacted quickly and had a first interview with a senior member of their team.
It went quite well and I was invited for the next step, which as he told me will be a personality test.
However, I soon received an email from a HR rep. asking me to create a “business plan”. Basically a business plan for them for the next 6 months.
The demand being so different from what I was told originally I felt something was wrong.
Other peculiar exchanges took place where things told on one email were suddenly contradicted the next one, things told during the interview proved to be incorrect and the explanations for what they wanted changed repeatedly.
However after further explanations were given, I decided to do it and I sent the business plan to them.
As soon as they received the plan, I never heard from them again.
I decided to let the week pass and called the person with whom I had the first interview the week after.
During the call, he contacted the HR rep. to whom I had sent the business plan the week before. Then he assured me that I would receive an answer in the next two hours, that it will be a positive answer because my profile matched, they found me competent etc….
I felt reassured, but when I hanged up, there was an email in my mailbox from the HR rep. telling me, in a mocking and almost insulting tone that my application wasn’t considered further.
Why would they do that and why doing like that?
I suspect that this company is just collecting free work and ideas from candidate for their business behind the pretence of a recruiting test.
But besides this fact, the way they mismanaged the recruitment, the disrespect shown, the incoherencies, the repeated lies, shows their complete contempt for human beings and a willingness to hurt people for fun.
I would like this review to help other prospective applicants to avoid to make the mistake I made. When one person tells you one thing, the other n another, when they ask for "free work", when you have doubts about the legitimacy of their requests, when incoherencies abound, just walk away even if it looks like a great job.
