On Monday I had a job interview with a really fantastic company. They asked me for a second interview. In the email that I was sent, they said the second interview would be on Wednesday. In the invitation they sent for an interview, the date was Thursday.

Somehow these people all got in a call this morning, while I was thinking that tomorrow was my interview date.

When I sent the invitation for Thursday back to the HR individual she said “I cancelled that” with no other text in the email. Perhaps I’m reading tone to that, but damn, I didn’t invite myself to a meeting on Thursday. You know who doesn’t get cancellations for Microsoft Teams meetings? PEOPLE USING GMAIL AND NOT MICROSOFT TEAMS.

I’m so bummed. They offered to reschedule, but I’m sensing tone in the emails the woman is sending me. I didn’t invite myself to Thursday, but I have a feeling no one else is going to hear that.

  1. The worst. The person giving you tone is very likely the person who screwed the damn thing up…and they can’t take responsibility without a side of blame for wasting everyone’s time. Fantastic companies still have folks that just lack character. πŸ‘ŽπŸ½


  2. Yep they just lost themselves a valuable candidate their loss. You certainly have to go out of your way in text to make things seem polite in general but especially in formal stuff. There’s definitely tone in their lack of elaboration. Highly strung and self-important if they can’t accept a mess-up especially when they caused it. It’s life, they should get over it and themselves!

    These corporate companies are all just fuckers devoid of humanity is what I am getting.

    No way man, not an environment for empathetic people!
