Something that I have experienced with recruiters on more than one occasion
is being pressured by the recruiter to accept the job. This happens before
I even interview. These recruiters will say, "I need you to commit to me
that if they offer you the job, you'll take it. Otherwise, I won't send
you on the interview." I refuse to commit, and sometimes they send me and
sometimes they don't, but that kind of pressure makes me feel very awkward
about the whole thing, makes me feel very negative about the company I'm
about to visit, and puzzled. They clearly don't care whether or not it's a
good fit, all they care about is closing the sale.
Obligatory quote:

"Live for today. Work like you don't need money; love like you've never
been hurt; dance like nobody's watching."
