In all my previous experiences, I’ve been the one receiving the call. I’m currently in the process for a financial advisor role at a finance firm where I’d be selling budgeting products to clients. I was simply instructed to call them at a designated time, which made me wonder if this is a standard practice.
I’ve encountered some questionable “interviews” through Indeed in the past, so I wanted to seek input from others before proceeding. Thank you all in advance!
I wouldn’t read much into it either way. There’s nothing particularly offensive about asking you to call them at a certain time. Nor does it expose you to any greater risk of it being a scam, just use your usual judgment to decide if it’s the right job for you.
Last several jobs where I had interviews…I was given a conference line to call at XX time…couple of others called in from the client site.
It’s easier to set up a conference line and have you call in than get everyone else on the line and then connect them all to you.
Besides it may be a little test to see if you are able to use the phone to place calls???
Ah, that makes sense! Thank you!
