Didn't get the job. Turns out that he was just looking around at what was
available. I've run into this before. Happens more when the economy sucks.
Then, when the economy is good again, they cry about not being able to find
qualified people. In this business (machine work), layoffs are common even
during good times. I have a policy that any place that lays me off, I don't
work there again. Worked at one place about 7 years ago where they layed
everybody off a week before Christmas and then called them back after the
holidays so he could save having to pay holiday pay. Slimeball called me up
after the holidays wanting me to come back to work for him. My answer? FU
and the horse you rode in on. I won't say the name of the company but it had
horse in the name. Twit went out of business before that summer. Good
That is really unfortunate. Better luck next year.
Have you thought about looking into retraining or recertifying? Couple of my
friends and one of our sons were out for more than six months and started
getting primed for something else. Boy got recertified in three months and
scored a job fairly quickly. My friends both had the misfortune to retrain
into real estate and get a couple years out of it before the bust. :(
After a few hours of preparation I had a job interview with a manager.
I walked out after he took his 4th cell phone call--I have absolutely
zero tolerance for rude behavior and certainly working for this person
would not have been a good thing.
