Have you ever been kept waiting for a job interview? One man's experience will make you think twice before sitting around for too long. After arriving early for his interview, he sat around waiting for over an hour without any attention. After he finally got someone's attention, he was told to wait some more. When the VP of sales didn't show up to interview him, he had enough and walked out. The recruiter later called him, but was it too late? Was he right to leave, or should he have stuck around? Read on to find out what people think.

Experienced job seeker shares tech sales job hunting struggles.
