I don’t know what to do, I’m terrified of getting fired now before I can find a new job!
So a few weeks ago, I got a call from a recruiter about a job, we set up a time to meet. I NEVER gave him my work number, however, he called me at work and left a message confirming. I was pretty annoyed, so when I did meet him I said that my employer does not know I am looking and that it’s private and he can reach me on my cell phone, the number I gave him.
He went on to say that he knows all the people that I work with and blah blah, so it kind of alarmed me a bit.
I didn’t hear from him for 2 weeks, then he calls yesterday, leaves a message on my cell phone and emails me and says you have an interview tomorow ( meaning today). I wasn’t in work yesterday due to our weather we got. I was annoyed because he can’t just assume I can up and go without asking me if today worked, ( which it didn’t) and I told him this and he got annoyed and I told him I would try to work something out, which I did. He then calls back later at 9:30 pm and moves the interview up 2 hours, and then drops the bomb about what the hours are. I told him that it would be really tough for me to make the new interview time.
After talking with my DH last night he doesn’t think the job is a good fit because of the hours and I agree, and that I can’t put my job on the line for a job that I’m not really wanting anyways and that I should just tell the guy no. Well all this happened at 11 at night being that the guy called me at 9:30, so at 6am this morning I emailed him declining the interview for this morning ( which was supposed to be at 10am). I didn’t hear back from him. However, when I got to work this morning I had 3 VM, all from this recruiter from yesterday when he was trying to get ahold of me. I am BEYOND pissed.
I’m sure when he DOES get my message he is going to be livid, but now I fear what he will do since he has to concept that he can’t call me work, and he stalked me out to even get my number at work! I have a feeling he didn’t get my message and won’t be able to tell the company I am not coming so it’s going to look bad on him which I’m sure he is going to be pissed at me for, whch I really don’t care, but I care more so because he is pushy and knows people at my job.
