Lack of professionalism during interview, red flag?
I had my first interview for the part time and unpaid recruiter internship. It is for a small business with less than 8 people working but has been in business since 99. They’re a staffing agency for IT, wireless telecom, engineering, etc.
The place is very small with no open space, kinda dim, very quiet, and no one to be seen. I was greeted by two ladies who were interviewing me. While answering questions one lady in charge was very rude. As I was talking she fiddled with her phone throughout the interview and at one point in rang and she excused herself to go talk.
Is it just me or is it just plain rude if an employer does that? Shouldn’t they set aside some time to put it away for 30 min?
I mean shouldn’t she be listening to me instead of staring at her phone every 5 minutes checking as if she wasn’t interested in what I was saying? The other lady focused on me though.
If I get offered the internship I’ll take it but it just turned me way off when she did that and I felt disrespected although she seemed pretty nice.
