So I was contacted by PandaDoc because they were to expand their software team.
Since they don't have offices on my country. They used a third party (deel) for managing the legal aspect.
On Monday I received the offer letter through this third party:
But didn't receive email from the recruiter.
I pinged her and we scheduled a meeting on Thursday.
In the meantime, I booked train tickets. My manager lives in a different city (~3h by train) and I wanted to give him the letter personally. Love the details.
The meeting with PandaDoc's HR; she told me that despite of they were extremely happy with my selection process - nothing but positive feedback - they were cancelling the offer.
She explained that they were entering in hiring freeze. I wasn't supposed to receive the offer letter. "I'm sorry".
Since Monday, I've already changed job. I mean mentally. This is the worst part. I'm not focused on my current job at all.
Cancelling an offer once I've received the letter is the most dirty thing I've suffered in a selection process.
Has anyone else experienced something similar? If so, would you be willing to share your experience?
Thanks for reading.
