Have you ever been stood up for an interview?
- 2Jul 28, '11 by klone, BSN, RNWhere you make an appointment for a telephone interview, and they just...don't call?
- 4Jul 28, '11 by iwannaYes, I was stood up for a phone interview, a few years ago. I was flabbergasted. The courtesy of a phone call would have been nice. If they decided that I was not a good candidate, they could have at least called to inform me. Sorry, this happened to you.
- 7Jul 28, '11 by littlewingrnI was stood up for a face to face! I drove an hour to the facility, met the HR rep and we headed to the nursing director's office. She was not there. Quick phone call to find out she had forgotten and could I wait around for a couple of hours. REALLY? I ended up staying around (not sure exactly why). Interviewed, was offered the job and politely declined. So glad I did. Everything happens for a reason and now I am as happy as a clam at a much better facility!

She called me about 2 hours later, I then let it go to voice mail, she said she got side tracked with something else..... I figured anyone rude enough to stand up on an interview would probably not be someone I would want to work for
- 7Jul 29, '11 by netglowQuote from Not_A_Hat_PersonI had an interview that was rescheduled twice; two of the interviewer's relatives died in a 5-day span. When I finally got interviewed, they interviewed me for the wrong position. The job I applied for had been filled.
Me too. I drove 40 miles for an interview. Waited there forever, then HR comes up to me and while we walk into the office I'm told the job has been filled. Then I interview with a neurotic NM who was NM for two units, for a totally different job, and all she does is tell me how she could never do "this" job herself, patients are abusive on this unit, and how bad it wears on you, nobody seems to be able to stay in the job. All the while, furrows in her forehead and shaking her head, looking down, wringing her hands. . I remember walking out to the parking garage amazed at what kind of idiots this new career has exposed me to.
- 7Jul 29, '11 by Hygiene Queen, ADN, RN GuideI came to an interview and when I arrived, I find out that the DON, who was going to interview me, had called in! Not only that, but she did not bother to tell anyone she had an interview!
I waited for an hour, in the lobby, waiting for them to find someone to interview me.
While I sat there, I realized an interview goes both ways.
I wasn't impressed.
When someone finally came to talk to me, the "interview" was in the lobby with the interviewer standing up, hovering behind a chair. I had to initiate the handshake... sheesh.
It wasn't even an interview.
It was, "When can you start?"
They were rude and didn't care about my qualifications.
I politely turned down the job.
It struck me as some place I did not want to be.
