A recruiter contacted me, regarding an opening, to see if I was interested. This recruiter gave a Salary Amount and location for this opening.
The recruiter agreed to telephone interview with their client. After interview, which went well, recruiter contacted me to see if I would go to the clients home office for another interview. After I agreed, the recruiter changed the Salary amount, lowering it by $8,000.
I was interested in the job but, recruiter would not negotiate. Should I contact their client and tell them how it appeared as a bait & switch occurred? Client said the position has been open 4 months & I was 1st interview. They gave the impression they wanted it filled yesterday. Is it ethical to contact them?
