I'm kinda feeling like its not worth it,

They disrespected my time for the 2nd interview

It's an entry level IT govt job that has multiple positions you could move up too

I was hoping this is why the position keeps opening up

How badly do you want this job? Sounds like they are playing some sort of game with that second interview stunt.

1st time I applied, the interview went well but another person was hired.

2nd time, I was actually invited by the hiring manager to come back and interview for the position again.

The second time has left a sour taste in my mouth. I made time in my busy schedule for this interview, drove all the way to the location, and paid for expensive downtown parking. The interview went well again and I was told they would be making a decision in the next two weeks. I sent my thank you note right after the interview. Two weeks passed by and there was no response so I called the interview and left him a voice mail. After this, a week passed and no reply. Next, I left a follow up email and left it at that.

Nearly 2.5 months after the interview, the interviewer finally gave me a call to apologize for leaving me hanging and that he had filled the position.



The position is now open again. It's a great position but I feel like it might be stupid to apply for this again seeing how he left me hanging waiting for a response when he asked me to come interview again. Note: This is a government job, so I know the process can be longer but I feel like this was very rude.


Any thoughts?

I would move on and focus on other positions especially since you been interviewed twice.

In the case of OP, because of the unique circumstances, I would need some very good answers as to why they should be taken seriously anymore. They don't sound like they are having much luck managing this position and it reflects poorly on them as a Company.

If you still want to deal with them, I'd really recommend getting some hard answers as to why a) They never got back to you, b) Why are people always leaving this job, c) Have they made any improvements to ensure that it won't happen to you, and so on. These need to be real answers, ie. recent takeover, new MD, sudden loss of a team, something in HR etc. not "we've uhhh recently reviewed uumm our company morals" kind of answers. Put them under some pressure and get them to prove they are serious about the job instead of letting them mess you around.

I have done something similar with another company. They were all "we're all about honesty and light and goodness" in the interviews. Surprise surprise, they went and gone back on their word almost instantly, but still want me to consider them. Why should I? I've asked them very nicely and professionally why they did this. No answer. Put the Company under your own tests, don't let them waste your time.

It could be crappy management and people leave.
It could be a crappy job and people leave.
It could be that it's entry level and people get promoted and leave.
It could be a growing department.
It could be all of the above.

I'd apply again if I were unemployed and in desperate need of a job and/or work experience and have nothing to lose.
