Glad I never had to work for a company like that. After 35 years, there
should be no interviewing and no layoff if another position was
available now or in the next few months.
I'm guessing it is a big organization. Most small companies don't
"interview" existing employees, we all know each other and our
abilities. After 35 years, you don't treat experienced, valuable
employees like a new hire.
I'm working at the last job I'll ever have and can stay as long as I
want. Been here 25 years.
Most big companies you have to interview with the other interested party.
The goal is to hire from within, but that does not guarantee it. Some
managers prefer to go outside, but most don't
I just got in touch with my interviewer. Finally.
what an air head.
I called the person who kept setting up the interview, they told me she
tried getting in touch with me. Anyway we were hooked up.
She called someone elses number, thought it was odd that the voicemail
recording said David.... but left the message.
I said I had been home and no one called. The number that she read was
not my number... 1st ding.
2nd ding was David instead of Jeff.
3rd ding was when she asked if I had experience with such and such... I
said NO.... she later asked again, and said that might be a show stopper.
So we continued on... She asked how long it would take me to get from
Philly to the job. I said I don't live in Philly. And where exactly is
the job, no one has provided any info. She gave me an address and then
asks So then you are coming from NY?
My address is on the resume... I can't believe how clueless this girl
is. This is definetly a first level HR person, with real little experience.
She tells me the name of the hiring manager and says to read up on his
bio.. And she'll forward him my resume.
Ding, Dong... anyone home.
This should be your BIG RED WARNING FLAG!!! If this person is the
first line of people dealing with callers and you have been treated this
way for this long you do not want to work there. This is not just an HR
problem. There should have been even the simplest of policies to deal
I am desperate for work. I'll keep looking, but I need the job. I have
worked for some of the worst people. I worked for a witch that loved
firing people... she got giddy. I heard she went through 85 people
before I came there. For some reason no one higher up ever thought it
was her... While I was there she went through quite a few. And twisted
a knife in and wiggled it a lot. So I can put up with a lot of shit,
My wife ends work for the summer shortly, so no money will be coming in.
I need something.
Well good luck with what ever you choose to do. My last job was
similar, it got to where I flipped a coin to make a decision knowing
full well which was the correct choice and which was the dead wrong
Yep - big time !
Voicemail message-tag ; third party communications ;
- and _especially_ emails ! -
... seem to limit effective 2 way communications ..
The big corporate business types seem to believe that
1 way communication is all that is required.
