Friday afternoon I had finally heard back from one of the interviews I went on back in August (seven and a half weeks after my interview), that they had gone with someone else. I still haven’t heard back from the first cost plus world market I think interviewed at for the season (9 weeks since my interview).
I knew I hadn’t gotten either of them the day I had interviewed for them. I have done enough retail job interviews to know that it’s rare to get the job if you walk out of the interview without at least a tentative job offer.
I found the whole email to let me know they went with someone else 7.5 weeks after the interview, and 3 weeks after I started my current job (and 5 weeks post interview for said job that I walked out of with a tentative job offer) to be down right hilarious. There is no reason to get angry and bent out of shape about it, especially now that I am working somewhere else. I have great coworkers, a great supervisor and great GM. I have the privilege to be working with some amazing people. If I were working at either of the other two places I interviewed for prior to where I work now, I doubt I would be having the same experience I am now.
I might also be finding that email hilarious because of how hard I have been working this past week.
