Today, I heard back from a company that I recently interviewed with. They told me I didn't get the job because "it was obvious that I had been coached." I wasn't. Sorry that I actually researched the company unlike the rest of the nit-wit candidates. FML

@OP, That doesn't make sense. If you're more qualified for that position than most others, then why would they reject you? Wouldn't they be losing profit due to the fact that someone with less experience couldn't work at the same pace as yourself?

Just because he did some research one. the company, that doesn't mean he was more qualified than everyone else. It doesn't even mean he was means he knew about the company.

Sadly most people won't hire someone who researches the company since they seem like to good of an employee and it might make the manager look bad later if their employees are better then them.


When one door closes, they say another door or a window opens. Sometimes though, it seems you have to break both of them down to get any where. Either, there will be other, better opportunities...

Another stroke of brilliance, #2, companies only wanting job applicants that currently have jobs. That's such a stupid policy. Bypass all the qualified individuals needing jobs, to steal an individual from another job site.

Clearly that would be a reason to get hired, you have more experience and you bothered to make an effort for this stupid interview. Frankly, if this company can't see past the deluge of its own stupidity then fuck it, you don't want to work there.

Private organizations run the government through lobbying. They spend billions of dollars to change the laws they want, and it pretty much is entirely their fault we're in debt.

Honestly? You're better off without them. If they don't want to hire you because you know more about their company than other candidates, then they probably won't be around for long. It's incredibly stupid for them to turn you away because you bothered to research the company beforehand.

I don't see why being coached would be a bad thing anyways.

Sorry op good luck in future interviews hopefully you find a company that values extra effort!
