I had a job interview on Wed. It went well. Lasted an hour. During the middle of it and towards the end she started telling me about benefits, salary, when second interviews are, when they are going to make a decision(next Wed ), when they wanted the person to start ,when and where training was ( out of the area). She asked me for references which I had ready. She said they were still interviewing this week.
She asked me if this all sounded OK and if I wanted to proceed. Sure. So she has me fill out an app took my DL (kind of mad I gave it without a job offer) Don't know why she wanted it. I mean I know for verifications on stuff for employment but I was not even asked to a second interview.
It is Friday and and no call yet. Yeah they can still call Mon for a tues interview. But I also saw the job posted the next day. I know they are looking for 2 locations but the one I interviewed for was up.
So they decided within 12 hours none of us were good enough? Or the posting was just due up if they had it already set to post? The gal is leaving the position like really soon so they need to fill it quickly.
I get that a company wants to let you know things so you can make a decision as well. Make sure you are OK with stuff too. Can I get away to train, do I need better health care than what they can offer, better salary...etc... I get all that.
But unless you, the employer, is really interested in me, why ask if I want to proceed if you are not going to proceed?
That is my beef here. You wanted to know if I was OK with what you said. I said yes. You wanted to take the next step and fill out the app.
And then..... nothing. That to me is a waste. If she had just left it as a don't call us we will call you type thing I'd be like OK whatever, normal interview stuff. But she genuinely wanted to know if bottom line I wanted the job and she went further with it. Now nothing,
Ok just ranting here.....any idea's? Too early to be irritated?
