I don't think with all due respect that TVSG is EVER going to get a legitimate job...

Well some people do, so just accept it. Look, not every company and every hiring manager and every interviewer follow the same script about how to hire. There is no handbook on the number of days to wait between application and interview, whether or not to expect or respond to a thank you letter, if sweating during an interview is grounds for not hiring you, how long in advance they need to notify you of an interview, or how they should notify you that you did not get the job. Every company is different and has different hiring procedures and you really need to just get over that already instead of posting here every time a company does something that you don't perceive as "normal." In this economy, the employer can do whatever they want, so stop questioning it and just go with it already.

[quote=tluv00;7940757]The other day you said you wanted a rejection by email......AND YOU GOT IT!! WTF is your deal other than not being employed currently? If your personality is a representative of how you are on this website.....which can be filtered.......it's no wonder you aren't getting anywhere.

You complain WAY too much. You want everything your way and if it's the slightest bit inconvenient for you it's their issue. You read like a narcissist and I don't mean to be rude (or a potted plant ) but you really need to settle down. Seriously.[/quote

I said a rejection email was fine AFTER THE INTERVIEW not when I apply for a job.

We (employers) generally hate when people call repeatedly to "make sure" someone got their application, to find out if they will be called for an interview, and to ask why they were not called. They don't seem to have the ability that TVandSportsGuy has, to conclude that he isn't a candidate when no one calls him.

Yup that's what I do, after a certain amount of time I just move on and focus on other openings.

I'm just saying this was NEW for me and it was the first time it ever happened. I don't like rejection emails at all but if I had to get one I would prefer it to be after the interview.

That's understandable....just remember it's not about your convenience or feelings it's about the perspective employers (unfortunately).

Yeah it was more shocking than anything. But I'm not complaining I'm just sharing what was new in my job searching life.

Don't worry TVGuy, I'm sure you'll be receiving more of those rejection emails and after a while, it won't be new to you anymore.

If I had a dollar for every one of those emails I've received in the past 9 months I wouldn't be searching for a new job.
