You should've waited to celebrate until after your first check. Also it's messed up when companies do that. Sorry about your luck.

Why would they do that? Is that even legal?

It is essentially like the applicant got hired and then immediately fired which follows all states at-will employment statutes if the firing was for cause or economic downturn and not discriminatory reasons. So yes, it is probably legal even if it is professionally unethical.

Wow, that sucks, but next time remember to treat your friends after you get your first paycheck.

No, if the friends don’t want to pay, the op can play it off as a joke.

Sweetheart, I have had this happen too... with my current job. Some corporations send out mass emails to everyone that applied- even to the one hired! You still might be golden! Talk to the person that hired you. Worked for this corporation 3 times, 3 very different positions and this happened every time.

So this corporation hired you three times, and sent youban email each time saying you didn't get the job? Are you sure those emails wete mistakes?

Since it was an email, it might be an error. Try to call the hiring manager or HR or whomever and ask about it. Those emails are automated and get sent out by mistake sometimes. Source: My job is to help others get jobs.

chickens...counting...hatch... something like that.

That would really suck...I'm a bit worried about my pending job offer at the moment.

You counted your eggs before they hatched..why spend money you don't have in your pocket.
