Yeah I sometimes wonder if they read my resume at all. Asked a lot of questions that was already covered in my resume.

Unfortunately I have encountered ALL of them. But I still hate the most is the ghosting after the interview.

I have had all this happen, but what I will say is, especially with that last one because I was mad about it, is that there is no greater joy then getting called by a company that ghosted you for two months after an interview right after another company wasted absolutely no time hiring you, and telling them "I am so sorry, but unfortunately I just was offered a position with a higher pay and better benefits after I assumed you were not hiring me due to the lack of communication following my last interview with your company." Righteous, spiteful vengeance in a customer service voice will always be my favorite experience.

All of them have happened to me as well and it seems more so now than ever. It's so unnecessary and employers are complaining they can't get qualified candidates when they don't even have quality staff conducting interviews.

When you can tell their attention is elsewhere. Checking phone, avoiding eye contact... definite red flags for me.

It is a commonly used tactic to verify facts on a resume by asking questions in an interview. They are looking for inconsistencies in the story. OR, they are just incompetent. However, treating people as a less viable candidate due to skin color is shameful and unacceptable. In this day and age, I find it crazy that racism flourishes.

Most interviewers have never read my resume and Ghosting is the current professional fashion.

Great Question! I think we all have had our own horrible experiences with unprofessional scenarios regarding interviews! These are great examples of what red flags look like.

I have been stood up by the interviewer before. I decided to decline the next request cuz I found it too disorganized.

Same here. But I can't really stand if they don't let me finish what I had to say.
