Update! I’m not a good fit…with people

Just kidding. Actually, that was the reason that I was, today,  finally rejected from a job for which I interviewed over a month ago. The one during which the woman asked me how old I was, and I was asked to be there for 4 hours, and then the actual manager could only meet with me for 15 minutes? Yep. Not a good fit.

I agree, I am not a good fit for those two personalities, so it is hard to actually be offended. The rest of the note I received from the HR manager was very kind and complimentary. She also apologized for the fact that I felt the interview had been mishandled and she said she would look into it. 

I am so glad that I said something. If I hadn’t I would be really angry at receiving this rejection email, which on the one hand was really late, but on the other hand was very nice. 

Alas! Another one bites the dust! 

PS. Another HR manager (from an interview two weeks ago) just wrote to inform me of a delay in their process, so at least I have heard something back! Usually, it’s just radio silence, so this is really great to know, before the holiday weekend. Now I can relax a little.
