Interviewing is a tiring process for both parties, so when they give you a hint on “we are so bad, we have to ask for a Word resume”, it is really a good thing.
Bad recruiters are a bliss really!

One thing I should mention is that a reason why third-party recruiters want Word is so they can edit your resume, to remove your contact info so the hiring company can’t contact you directly and to change it into something they think is more marketable. When I interviewed at Electronic Arts, the interviewer couldn’t understand my resume because the recruiter added so many buzzwords! Fortunately, I had a copy of the original with me.
