So disgusted

I had a great phone interview last Tuesday with a director from a company that was extremely close to the job I was doing before I got laid off. I emailed them directly on September 30, then found the same posting on LinkedIn, so I applied again. I then followed up on my original email. During the interview he mentioned that it was my follow up that got me the interview because when he read my original resume he thought I was overqualified. At the end of our interview he reassured me that I would get a call back either way, because he strongly believed that a personal follow up was the right thing to do. How did I find out that they are no longer considering me? By an email I received this morning from LinkedIn. Sorry for babbling, but I’m beyond depressed and frustrated.

I feel you truly! USPS and UPS did the same thing. USPS actually hired me and I have yet to hear from them and the position ends Jan 3rd and USP was supposed to send me day and time to take my 20 min road test gave the training dates and location in Columbus and everything. I was suppose to follow up with him via text after my drug screen I did so and that was three weeks ago and if I’ve heard from him you have. I sent emails to people who were emailing information at USPS trying to find out what’s happening you actually gave me the job, I’ve completed and past all pre-hire requirements and no one seems to know anything nor do they seem to care! I said now if we did this, we’d be seen as irresponsible and unreliable candidates, yet it’s fine for them to leave us looking for jobs have to pay bills in limbo with no respect for our time, efforts or concerns for even needing the job! It’s a very unbalanced approach for job seekers as the market has shifted in their favor! We’ve got to do something! I said on one post, we all need to start chipping in a dollar a day and playing the lottery together so someone can choose the number and we split the earrings according to what we put in or we all agree on the same amount and split it evenly! We’ve got to make something happen!

Walmart distribution did the same thing to me.

What's more frustrating is that the previous job I held I was demoted for " not doing my job" paperwork, etc. However others in that position can be rude, unprofessional, and show favorite's. When. I did any of the above I was criticized and wrote up.

Overqualified?! Probably afraid you might take jobs from them.

Sorry to hear. Employers like and play games with applicants as a form of abuse of power and a form of entertainment. They put their misery on you. Be glad you didn't get the job

It's good to find jobs @ jobcase employers hire you when you meet the qualifications for the professional job you're looking for.
