Got the rejection mail 5 minutes after starting the phone screen

LOL! Probably they already hired someone else and just wanted to have the phone screen as a courtesy... or probably just a way to get certified on some sort of govermental program...

But WTH Apple! Do a better job at covering your tracks!

EDIT: The phone screen was not cut short, we did the full hour. The interview was from 12 to 1, the email was sent at 12:05

      You must have used a very aggressive tone 😂

      Was it "hello" like a friendly greeting or "hello" like I OWN you, and you will bend to my will?

    This would be appalling if it weren’t so hilarious, were you on call with your interviewer when it happened?

      That’s 3 minutes to evaluate your performance, 1 minute to write up feedback and 1 minute for recruiter to send a rejection email 🤔 Not impossible.

    Was the interview with Albertsons? If yes, this is expected.

    The recruiter probably missed his Uber or was surcharged.

    Recruiters move fast to low-ball these days ... This one took it one notch further, now you just want to get the offer no matter what the level or pay...

      really? apple shares details of the team u will be joining and/or the work you will be doing?
      Sep 4, 2019

      Shares the team, not exactly what you will be doing

    Sometimes systems glitch you know. Most likely its an automated message. I had a false rejection email before and the hiring manager cleared it up after

      Yeah, that’s a possible explanation

    If you applied to multiple positions then someone might have rejected you but you still in process with someone else. Usually you get generic email. Happened with me once.

  • Confirm with the recruiter. Likely a mistake.
