I’ve been unemployed for about 6 months and had an email about a customer service role in a big company. The lady asked me to call her if I’m still interested, which I was because I sent my C.V for this role.
I was really excited about it, felt positive that I’m the right person for the job. Did my research and everything.
So I ring her and introduce myself and she instantly thinks I’m someone she already talked to the day before but I corrected her and told her that she asked me to ring her.
Eventually she remembered who I was, what started as reasonable questions about my studies etc. It then felt as if this lady was attacking my answers about my experience and when I tried to elaborate she didn’t seem interested in listening and found her to be rude and unnecessarily aggressive.
I finished the call with her and my mood has been awful all day i feel completely deflated. Why reach out to me if you saw my C.V. and didn’t think i was the right candidate why waste my time and get my hopes up and on top of that make me feel shit about my work experience.
I can’t just get this out my head and try to be positive, it really affected me badly.
I don’t know what to do, i feel like such a failure and I don’t have anyone to talk to who understands the frustration i feel. Anyone else been through a similar situation??
It’s ok man, you can try somewhere else. I always go through the interviews smoothly so i can’t get understand what you are going through. Still i know how it feels when people are rude to you unnecessarily.
Interviewers can be prejudiced since they take a lot of interviews it gives them and instant hunch of whether you could be a right candidate or not based on nothing really. Thing is they could be wrong but you can really never point it out. Sorry it didnt work out for you.
Yes I understand that they have a hunch and of course I wasn’t expecting to even go to the next round but why be rude and aggressive, I don’t understand why she was attacking me. Unprofessional in my opinion
It’s OK you don’t want to work for a company that treats people that way. This is just a sign that if you do take the job it’s going to mentally drain you just like that phone interview. I have been unemployed for a while so I understand but don’t trade your peace or happiness for money. Something better will come along. Good luck.

It happens in cs interview. Apply in similar roles in other companies. See linkedin.there are lot of opening. Don’t think too much about what the lady said . It’s okay to feel that way. Good luck.
