@skippydarling:  That’s so frustrating!  Do you have the contact info of the recruiter who you talked to during the first phone interview?  Since you haven’t heard anything, AND had a scheduled interview with them, I wonder if something is going on internally which caused them to miss the call?

This is… odd. I’d chalk it up the the holidays but it’s been 3 weeks.

Take it as a red flag and keep trying to contact them, especially if the listing is still up.

@skippydarling:  I know my office shut down a week ago (but really, we wound down almost 2 weeks ago).  I would call them on Monday.  Try and touch base with the recuriter as well.  

Stay upbeat and positive in your messages and emails 🙂

@skippydarling:  I would say wait until after the holidays in your case. I had a similar issue a few years ago. I wanted to work for an oilfield company, and they were very interested, passed the phone interview, and then they just flat out ignored me for a month. I then went back and saw the job deadline was extrended another two months, called them, still said they were interested, I left a message with the hiring manager to get to meet him/her, and never heard abck AGAIN. I kept trying different people, everything. Finally, they posted the job out again, and I threw up my arms. I had enough being jerked around and found something else. Thier loss 🙂

Ugh, how annoying! I would call them next week and if they don’t call back then don’t bother with them! I wouldn’t want to work for them if they can’t treat their potential employees right…how would they treat their employees??
