A really large company very actively recruited me, and is planning on flying me out soon, however, I don't want to interview and no one is answering the phone/email for me to cancel the flights/rental/hotel. Initial offer was pretty high, and some unexpected changes happened (including a significantly lower offer) which prompted me to call my original recruiter.
During that call, the original recruiter basically let me know that "Steph" (not real name), a hiring manager, had been very derogatory (explicitly saying I'm not worth it in an email) and campaigned to low-ball me, and succeeded... But still wanted to interview me. The original recruiter also revealed that one of the other recruiters changed who is credited with recruiting me, taking away the incentive from my original recruiter if I'm hired.
Between being low-balled, strong-arming, and political infighting, I signaled that I didn't want to continue interviewing. This resulted in being connected with a senior recruiter who convinced me to fly out, despite me saying repeatedly now is not the time for me. They sent me plane tickets and everything.
Obviously I'm burning a bridge because I'm simply not getting on that plane. But how do I let them know I think they really don't have their stuff together and that's why I'm not continuing? I don't want to burn the original recruiter either.
