Depression Diaries – June 10

I had a job interview today.

I put on makeup for the job interview.

The interview was at 1:30 pacific. The woman showed up nine minutes late.

Why did I wait nine minutes? This was a job that I actually wanted.

How long did the interview last once she finally did show up? Well, she spent 6 minutes complaining about all of the fires she had to put out today, and proclaiming that’s why she was late. Following her complaints, there was an 8 minute discussion about ourselves. She didn’t ask me a single question about skills and qualifications. She didn’t ask me about my work preference. She didn’t ask me anything.

How incredibly unprofessional.

Then, she said she was out of questions and so she was going to the discussion there.

I said “Thank you for your time, I no longer wish to be considered for this position.”

She took offense to my withdrawing from consideration.

She showed up late. She didn’t ask me a single fucking question about myself. She ensure the entire interview was fourteen minutes in total and then she said she wanted to go. She was the unprofessional idiot wasting my time, and she gets to take offense at my not wanting to work for her?

On paper, this job looked amazing.

I’d viewed this company website and it had looked great.

Their senior director, however, is not someone I need or want in my life right now. I don’t have the time, patience or energy for laziness, unprofessionalism and stupidity.

What a giant fucking waste of my time and energy.

I’m going back to bed.

  2. I had an interview where they gave me the wrong phone number. So I called, no answer and waited near the phone. They emailed the correct number after the interview time. Of course, I was not on email as I was supposed to be focused on an interview. I decided that company was too disorganized to want to work for.

  3. With such a coworker you’d have a very hard time. All the work would land on your desk. Great you didn’t take the job.

  4. Amazed how we the canidate have more interest in a company we are applying vs. the hiring manager. I picked up on the experience doesn’t matter about a year ago.. Least you had questioned asked. Our world is a mess. Sadly company recruiters have no motivation or interest.. You will land a job soon.. Best of luck..
