There are several companies, and even HR people who have moved and taken their "reputation" with them that I don't bother with any more. Also when asked, I tell people to not bother dealing with them because of the HR people's attitudes, and I deal with a *lot* of people.
I'm near the top of my game, and I tell not only my peers but up-and-coming stars to stay well clear of those companies and the specific HR people too.
There is only one thing a job hunter hates hearing more that "Thanks, but no thanks" it's nothing ...... it's the ultimate in disrespect and a good indication of why 95% of people in recruiting need to be fired on the spot.
All things are two way, and the very typically arrogant "I'm in the position of power" HR person at that point in time is representing their whole company, while tripping on their own ego, and it shows 100% of the time. The top talent will walk away from that every time.
The up side is, that the minority that actually choose to show some basic level of respect for other humans - which is rare in the profession - really stand out.
Long live personal networking.
