I have worked with people who were undergoing chemo or for kidney dialysis. They had to take time off for their medical treatment but worked out schedules with their managers that were satisfactory to everyone. Taking time off for doctor appointments is no excuse for leaving your desk at will or taking off a great deal of time during working hours. These things can be arranged if they are discussed with the employer. Otherwise, it just appears the person is just looking for excuses to take time off.

Employers are not heartless about these things but the employee has to meet them halfway.

Now, one other thing I forgot to mention is that the company I interviewed with this week told me that I was their 2nd person they interviewed for the job. Do you think they will want to interview anymore people? How many candidates do companies usually interview for a position? I was surprised that I didn't get an offer yesterday. Also, the HR lady told me that she was going to call me yesterday to talk about benefits, and she never called.

any call from them?

He might have the record for most closed threads.

For him to be quiet, I suspect December did not turn out well.

I can't imagine much hiring is going on right now. So hopefully he enjoyed being with his family for the holidays.

Usually it picks up starting in about 6-8 weeks..winter winding down, new budgets, and before college grads get attention.
