I went for a job interview
over a week ago. The person interviewing me said they would get back with me. Never did. Now, I am a big girl and can handle disappointment. At least they could have had the common deceny to call me and let me know they gave the position to another person. I called at the end of last week and left message on the manager's phone just stating I was curious about the status of the job. To me, this just shows that I am better off not working for this company. Just venting. Thanks.

Whether a note is sent or not, it seems to be the rule rather than the exception that HR does not bother to acknowledge one's application, interview, follow up, etc. since they have no motivation to do so. They are clerks who are trying to get their work out of the way so they can go on break. To boil it down, they don't give a damn.
I agree that this is very bad PR as well as poor manners for the companies involved (nursing or not), but for the most part they don't seem to be willing to put the money or time into making their own company look good. It just makes it clear that the companies themselves have very little respect for the very people they are trying to recruit. People who have shown enough interest in their company to fill out an application, send in a resume, interview, whatever.
These applicants obviously do not deserve common courtesy, or what used to be common courtesy. And the comopanies wonder why they can't get "good" applicants, or people who become loyal employees. Duh!
