Swine Corporate Shills

Ok, so the theater called me back twice more for successive re-interviews, and by the third one it was down to one other candidate and me. Well, guess what? It was a week ago that I met with their Regional Manager, and I haven't heard a peep out of them since! I have to assume they went with the other guy, and didn't even do me the courtesy of calling to let me know, which is way rude. I always called and told the people I wasn't hiring that they didn't measure up (only nicely, of course).

I know, I know, you're thinking I should have called them, in case it was a test. The thing is, they seemed pretty desperate for the current managers to actually get a day off, so I don't see them twiddling their thumbs waiting to see who won the telephone sprint. But I could be wrong, so I'm going to call today--if for no other reason than to mention that a simple rejection would have saved me a lot of false hopes and useless anxiety. Not that they care, but I'll feel better...

I had an interview like that a while back. I thought it went pretty well, and not only did they not call to tell me I didn't get picked, they wouldn't return MY calls asking about it.

Any news?

Sigh....even though they told me it was a full time salaried position, they offered me part time at $9.25/hr when I called them. Um, I'm making more than that from Unemployment, thanks! They're swine...

That sucks, Susie. Years back, a company flew me out to Arizona for an interview. Like you, it came down to me and another guy. I guess that they hired him because they never freaking bothered to tell me.

Worked out okay in the end, as I met the lady who would become my wife at the other job I took. But the unprofessional behavior really pissed me off.

Sorry that you're still looking. I hope something comes up soon.
