After many tough technical interviews with a giant tech company, I was finally contacted by the HR department to let me know that I passed all of them and they wanted to schedule an interview to discuss about salaries etc.
We talked for about an hour, and after that we start exchanging some e-mails regarding bonuses etc, usual stuff. However, in almost all of our e-mail correspondence, this HR person keeps greeting me with
"Hello dear," or "Hi dear,"
and then the message follows.
I wonder if this is simply because the person forgets to type my name in the template they probably have or what? I have to say that I feel somewhat uncomfortable with this and I would never expect that from such a giant company.
Did this happen to anyone before, and how shall I handle it? I think I will simply ignore it and reply as I always have: Dear [name of the person].
