I know how you feel, OP. Before I finally earned the position I'm in now, that happened to me TWICE. Fickle managers piss me off. Either create a position, or don't. You shouldn't dangle an opportunity in front of your employees, just to take it away.

Yeah, that happened at one of my old jobs but they dangled it so you would do more work. So I don't know if I should suggest OP to work normally when positions arrive or what. They might be playing the whole company.

According to dictionary.com, it's a pithy or witty remark. FML leads to many educational discoveries for me on a daily basis. Fun AND educational!

The one thing is you know they said they would call you. It isn't anything to do with you per say just the business didn't need that position open anymore. It could have been a number of scenarios. Nothing against you personally. Don't take it as such OP.

The interview must have been a devil of a job but your probably did a bang up job on it. Maybe they cancelled it because they thought you would lie down on the job. O well make the best of a bad job.

#11 - I had a version of this happen; others were told I had the job before I was offered and accepted it. I had to find the hiring manager to get the story straight. Awkward.

Yeah! I hate when companies fire people! It's not like they give you multiple warnings and chances to explain yourself! It's not like there are laws requiring them to have a legit reason! It's not like you have grounds to sue if you are fired for an illegitimate reason which leads companies to ridiculously accepting of laziness and stupidity! Have you ever tried to fire someone? It can be much harder than you think, even if they are fucking slack and always late. Admittedly this does depend on the size, and even the general atmosphere of the company.
