"It is true that I did not work in this company, but" participated in the recruitment ", which may give a certain image of the company. Why did I put the quotation marks? Already translators. In December last year on linkedin I got a message from XXX that they are looking for people with my profile to work as an auditor of medical devices. The message was sent as ctrl c, ctrl v, not rewritten by the recruiter. I filled out the form and we arranged an interview, and this is my first spouse. There was supposed to be contact and no response. So I asked what was going on and it turned out that something needs to be specified in the form sent. After the amendment, the collusion repeated itself "

“The bonus is for managers and agents, not for you, and you must submit. It is up to the manager to decide whether you will get bonuses and how he will divide it, if he intends to do so at all. Everyone only "where the bonus". Become a manager, you will give bonuses if you stay one with the other at all because they are afraid of responsibility but they can write. "
