When I got there, I sat and waited in a conference room and could hear the interviewer singing loudly on the other side of the wall. When she finally came in, she just stated that I didn't have the training experience they were hoping to find for this specific position and wondered if I still wanted to interview. I said no because I already felt like I wasn't going to be seriously considered. She also blamed her staff for not understanding what they were hiring for before making the calls. She said she had already has a few interviews where it was apparent these people did not realize what the job entailed.

I can accept if I'm not the candidate someone was looking for but they could have at least called me before I made the trek out there to let me know this instead of wasting my time, gas, and money to get there. I had sent my resume, writing samples, and personnel evaluations days in advance and it was obvious they hadn't bothered to even look at any of it until I got there. Also, I did appreciate how the interviewer threw her staff under the bus. I think it's management's responsibility to fully inform and educate their staff of what the expectations are if they are going to leave it up to their staff to schedule the interviews. This little experience just showed me how unprofessional their operation was and made me grateful that things didn't work out in the end. Less
