Is this common in the corporate world?

last modified: last month

I wrote a reference letter for a peer. Since then, I've received 6 emails from the company corporate office asking me to complete an extensive (and IMO intrusive) online evaluation form about my friend. I've ignored the notes and my friend has already started the job.

This first letter was formatted as though it was from my friend even though it was an obvious form letter. Subsequent requests have been from the human resources department.

As a point of reference, it would be like a large chain department store corporate human resources department asking me repeatedly to evaluate an assistant shoe department manager candidate.

Am I being neurotic or is this normal?
