Coming or going

By almost governmental - 05/09/2014 22:02 - United Kingdom - Peterborough

Today, I got a call about a job interview, saying I was hired. I was ecstatic, until they called me back and said they'd called the wrong applicant. They called again later, saying there'd been a mistake and I really was hired. When I went in to confirm it, they said they'd never heard of me. FML

Sounds like that company needs to get their stuff together. But sorry OP. Hope you find a good job one day.

I think you dodged a bullet there...

OP should have asked if they counted as billable hours.

#1: The OP's username is "almost governmental", so maybe we're in some real trouble...

A screw up like that? Almost bound to be our *wonderful* government.

Look at the country. UK is just as screwed up as the United States apparently.

How does that even happen hahaha.

did you tell them you applied?

You did dodge a bullet there. If you were in that job, who knows what you would turn into; because of the staff there!

I'd say it happens, but in honesty your luck sucks.

Think of it as an opportunity to pursue bigger and better things!

That's just rude. You should boycott them

Boycott the government?

Definitely skipped the name earlier...

Kinda sounds like someone is playing a cruel joke on you. Probably someone close to you since they know about you applying for jobs. If it is a joke, that's a f'ed thing to do to a friend.

At first I thought that this company was really unprofessional and sloppy, but once I read that OP went to the building and they didn't know him, I too started wondering if it was a prank. Either it's a prank or the company is really disorganized, but either way your life really sucks OP!

If he had applied to the place, they should have known that he had interviewed, at the very least. If they didn't even have records of that, it sounds more like a FUBAR company than a prank from a friend.

FUBAR pretty accurately describes government, so you're probably right.
