Cisco's recruiter pestering for my salary and other offers
It's been 2 months in since I started with phone screen and recruiter is very slow in responding and taking about 3 weeks for each next step, so far 2 phone screens and one on-site in last two months. During the on-site, the lead engineer saying " you are open in the market for long time as I first did phone screen few months ago" !!. The comment looks like to me a sarcastic but I just kept quiet.. after 3 weeks, recruiters sending me emails about current TC details are necessary to move forward.
I said, the current TC is not relevant since the job role I am interviewing is different in skills and responsibilities. After couple of days, recruiter came back to me and asking, do you have any current offers and please let me know full details to move forward.
These recruiters seems to be very unethical and trying to cheat unsuspecting job seekers to be taken advantage of. These recruiters seems to be "shopping around" for cheaper job seekers and insisting on numbers.
This particular recruiter is from 3rd party from RANDSTAND NORTH AMERICA.
Is this common behavior among Cisco recruiters ?
