I am very disappointed with Room 8.
I live and work in Kyiv for more than 6 years and I never met such unprofessional company.
In 2018 I was contacted by Mariya Ignaticheva on LinkedIn with the proposal to collaborate since my skills at that time fit the company’s needs, and in the same message, I was asked if I am registered as self-employed.
I replied to her message saying that at that time I did not have open “ФОП”, but I responded that I can open a “ФОП” with no problem.
After a few hours, Mariya wrote me back that they can’t hire me because I was not a Ukrainian citizen.
This made me very angry since first of all they contacted me for collaboration, 2nd of all I am paying taxes in Ukraine like all the other citizens and I have permanent residence. This means that by Ukrainian law I have all the rights that a Ukrainian citizen has, only the right to vote is not permitted.
Of course, I send her paragraphs from Ukrainian law where I prove that I can be hired as a normal citizen without any additional problems for a Ukrainian company, but I was totally ignored.
Today after almost 4 years I reviewed the LinkedIn profile of Mariya and I saw, unfortunately, she became Talent Acquisition Team Lead, it is a shame that such an unprofessional employee became a Lead in your organization, or maybe this is not her fault and actually, politic inside of the company made her treat me like I am nobody.
I am very happy to say that after Room 8, I never met such unprofessional company in my career!
