Today, I had an interview for my dream job. I spent all of last night preparing, researching the company, and making sure everything was perfect. My interview was for 8am. I woke up at 10:30 to an alarm that had not gone off. FML

This used to happen to me all the time, I guess we're just heavy sleepers. So there is the option of setting up multiple alarms, orrrr there is a app that you can get where you have to solve a math problem in order for it to turn off. Either way, you'll definitely wake up :)

I've got a couple of friends who simply never hear their alarms if they're in deep sleep, no matter how many they set up.
And no, they're not hitting snooze, they simply don't hear them until hours later.

Despite my alarm always working I always set multiple alarms for important events so I couldn't agree more.

Also #62 you are WAYYYYYY to insecure. I needn't even explain that.

I always set multiple alarms with different tones or songs, 5 minutes apart or less if I'm worried as it males it less likely you'll sleep through them all.
Having just 1 is ridiculous considering most people can set them on their phones.

I doubt it. They probably thought OP didn't want the job, or if he did, wasn't willing to take initiative and demonstrated poor work ethnics. I wouldn't hire someone like that if I was an employer.

Many people are looking for jobs. One point for interviews is so the employer can choose what people or person (s)he believes to be most fitted for the job at hand. Chances are, OP wasn't the only applicant. Even if he was, the employer may have believed that his company would have lost money due to OP not bringing in as much money as his paycheck was, in theory.
