I was recommended to an interview by a recruitment company. Due to issues with their communication platform, they forwarded my personal contact details to their customer. They asked for permission and were given one by me beforehand.
What's weird though is that now they are querying ME if there was an interview set up, and what's the result. There is no result yet, which is what I told them today, when they called me.
Is it normal and acceptable for a recruitment company to monitor the recruitment status of their customer (the company that might hire me) through me, by calling my phone?
I don't feel comfortable being called like this, but I also do not feel comfortable withdrawing the information from them since they probably need it for their business. I always thought recruitment company is supposed to get this info from their customers.
What is an appropriate way to ask them to monitor hiring status with their customers and not me?
