Yep, and guess what? She don't care about your time or money. Hate to say it, but welcome to the real world. Now, the secret to getting her attention? Call about every other day, finally she will pull it just to get you out of her hair. :lol2:

I have got to agree with Shay. This lady is busy and it won't do you any good to be mad. The trick is to keep your name in front of her without totally irritating her.

I had that problem with one of the agencies I applied with recently. I was interviewed but the coordinator has been dragging his feet, not getting back to me, etc. I finally had the satisfaction of leaving him a message yesterday: "I have accepted an offer from another agency. (I named the agency.) Thank you for all the time you have spent considering my application. (Dig)"

From an HR perspective, you have to realize just how many resumes come into an office at one time. This recruiter maybe responsible not only for the postion you applied for but maybe 50 others, especially if you are applying at a hospital. If you could see my desk right now, you would understand. I try to keep folders for each job opening I have, but it does get overwhelming.

For her to even say she will review your resume on the weekend means a lot as some people don't bother to work on the weekends at all.

Yes, there are many HR professionals who do not put the Human part into it, but you have to look at both sides of the picture.

One of my former supervisors used to complain regulary that "It was like pulling teeth" in order to get HR to process qualified candidates she had already interviewed. And, by the time they finally got around to giving her the approval she needed to hire someone, her candidate(s) had given up and accepted another position elsewhere.

I know everyone is busy (including HR), but I have to side with the OP. When you've got bills to pay, and food to put on the table, that is the LAST thing you want to hear from a recruiter. :o

For some reason I applied again for a job a few weeks after placing my first application. I was called and interviewed the second time, and hired. The DON was surprised that she had never seen my first application at all. However, I was able to put two and two together because she told me that she was hiring me to replace a nonperforming employee. My first application was "canned", and my second application just happened to come in when she had remarked that she was looking for someone.

Heres a little story. I went to this agency for work as a phelbotomist. They say we need Cna's. I become Cna , they say its slow and the off season we need LPn's . I become LPN they say what we really need is Rn's. I became Rn and the temp lady put app on bottom of stack. They call all excited. I say too late am with other agency. They fire manager over this.

First of all, I agree with YOU -- and I guess the reason I agree with you is that I ran into the same problem about 8 years ago. I applied for a staff position at the other large hospital in Mickey Mouse town; I called back several times and NEVER had a return call. No explanation (I had all the credentials and experience they wanted; the recruiter was warm and fuzzzy with me AND I received an offer on the spot from a competitor). My references were impecable - WHO knows!!!!

I know there is a severe nursing shortage in the state in which I live; there are 9 staffers left of the night crew - all the other positions are filled by in-house central staffers.

Don't let it bother you; good luck!
