Hi guys,

Is it normal for recruiters to ghost after the candidates ask to reschedule the interview multiple times. With work commitments and other interviews I had to postpone my interview by 3 hours then by two weeks. Then I again had a blocker because of this after office team exercise my manager has arranged which I cannot avoid because we know each other so well. The recruiter is from apple. Was really looking forward to the interview, now I’m bummed out.

My reasons are sort of genuine. I am not sure how to go about this. Any advice?

    Clearly you don’t care enough about this opportunity at Apple.

      Yeah. It's called taking a day off, being sick, or making something else up. OP sounds pretty loyal to the current team, and subconsciously doesn't want to leave anyway.

      I do care, it’s Apple! But it’s very difficult to work around work commitments coming up last moment. And around the exact same time when the interview is scheduled.

      My managers know me personally so its very difficult to make up a reason last moment. And I don’t want to risk letting them know that I’m thinking of moving for an interview that might not result in a job.

      Every time you reschedule, you affect the schedule of the interviewers. Eng time is precious.

    You shot yourself in the foot. You just showed you do not know how to prioritize and and not dependable to meet your obligations.

    I’ve bowed out when a recruiter has rescheduled more than 3 times on me. So Yeah they can do the same.

    Not good. If apple was that important, you should have scheduled a PTO day.

      Had onsite interviews with other companies on the same week. Already had taken a pto. Both times. Would have taken a pto if it was the apple onsite.

    Recruiters are usually good at one thing - ghosting
