It was during the final call with her that I detected something amiss

She was so smooth and nice sounding , then when she says Monday or Tuesday . all of a sudden when saying Monday , her voice breaks abit . Perfect up till that . That was a little red flag for me. Pitch perfect all along then I got hmmmmmmm......

That was the rat I talked about

You know she might have heard from her boss that they were maybe recruiting in colleges for this position anymore or ........as i am usually pretty confident in phone interviews, what i would hate to think is she was trying to clip my wings a little bit . Maybe .

The way you handle it make it seems like you are prob a very difficult employee to deal with. Mistakes happens and you are suppose to deal with it like an adult.

Not so much in actual fact very professional and fair. The HR director sent me a very nice letter just now. In it she expressed regret for the recruiter breakdown in communication. Very nice letter and she actually said she was happy to get my feedback.

So not all negative . But felt I was doing the right thing . Maybe it will help the recruiter too.

It's not refreshing. It's an alarming case of very bad judgment.

Nope. You are one lucky SOB.

The HR director may have responded, but it doesn't sound as if you got a new interview either. You got an apology to make you go away, you got blacklisted from this company, and the HR dept and hiring manager are glad that they didn't hire you.


I have sent out such apologies in the past. They aren't really sincere, they are simply a brushoff.

Here is what I think. Since you already know that some interview are not equal, then you should know better. You didn't have to bring it to the director's attention because if they had planned to play you, it doesn't matter who you talk to, they will have their whole game plan on. This is the negative side.

Here is the positive side. The recruiter might had really forgot you said about unavailable on Thursday. In addition, the hiring manager might simple don't have any other days available because he/she is busy due to short of staff. Bottom line, be positive, don't assume people did you wrong. Negative energy will only attract more negative event toward you.

I wish you the best. Life come and go, don't stress yourself out for something you think other should have done for you. It is our own expectation that really kill us as a decent human being.

"The HR director may have responded, but it doesn't sound as if you got a new interview either".

I contacted the recruiter before the HR director to say I would not be taking myself out of consideration for the job. The recruiter actually said she wanted to go ahead and continue the process. It was in the letter from the HR director she thanked me and wished me luck etc. It would have weird to continue on with the process given all that happened. I would say my chances were zero at that point.

"It is our own expectation that really kill us as a decent human being".

You know it was just in our conversations all the skills were there and the background was in place too. It was less money than what I am used to , so I have to think , just because less pay does not mean to demean it at all . Or, give it to me it is mine type of attitude . I can do this one in my sleep.

Too many expectations built around that feeling outline above. Anymore, no assumptions , just like before, they don't call , move onto next one. No need to get upset about it . Just do my bit anymore . Impossible to dictate terms in the interview process. Back to basics.

Funnily enough, I found the HR director letter very nice and actually reminds me we are all human after all.

You screwed your chances at getting a job at that company forever. Also at getting a job at ANY company where the HR director eventually works, or that HR person works, if they happen to notice your resume before you are hired. Either one of those HR people can switch jobs and end up working at your dream company. They'll remember you forever.

Dumb move on your part. It shows that you are a problem employee by your actions.

HR did their job and screened out a potential bad hire. You made their job very easy for them.

OP didn't expect to get a job with this company any more, at least not the way how he/she sound. So, he kind of just show the bad side.

Here is what I would like the OP to understand. A director from HR might be working for this company that you could care or less about, but imagine in the future this director happens to work for another company, and you just so happen to really want that job. Have you consider that? I really think is unnecessary for you to reach out to the Director at HR. Next time, don't do something like this, just for the sake of your own future. Good luck.

You were in the wrong OP. There was a more subtle way in going about this.
