And it stuck me, there is no way they are going to employ me. I don't know what caused it I gave honest frank answers she liked my CV and was keen to get me in for an interview but then I just sensed this sea change, she turned and.
I got up told them I thought they unprofessional and thank you for wasting my time. I just knew as soon as she said that I was fucked and that no matter how good my experience and qualifications, referees I was not going to get the job.
On retrospect I should have told her to go fuck a pig..
Good for you.
Had an interview.
The first thing the panel told me was the job I applied for does not exist but we have this other job, are you interested? Classic bait and switch.
Should have told her to fuck off for wasting my time but since we are in the same industry, I said no problem. IN truth, I would not have applied for the job cos I know the hierachy is fucked up.
The boss seems like a controlling freak and the other guy in the panel is junior to me, know less than me and higher up the pecking order than me.
