Ugh I’m so sorry for you husband, the etiquette today regarding jobs is in my opinion, is horrible! I realize people are like a dime a dozen but that doesn’t mean they should be treated like an invisible person or be denied common decency!

I had to withdrawl an application from a County position due to similar reasons! Huge lack of communication and ignorance that just left me bitter and beyond frusterated. I wasn’t sure about working for a place with that type of management.

@msfahrenheit:  Honest opinion and I may be wrong because I really am not sure how it works, but they may not be interested.  FI went on a Target interview so he could work overnights stocking and work days to start up his plumbing business.  His interview was for 10 pm with the night manager.  He told me that no one bothered to show up until 10:45.  He sat around waiting.  Anyways, they go through the interview and he thinks he did pretty well.  He’s confident he’ll get the job.  When he got home, Fiance researched how long it would take to hear back from them.  I had told him that it usually takes a week because I’ve interviewed with Target before.  Long story short, a week goes by and he doesn’t hear anything.  So he called up Target to thank them for the interview and see how it’s going.  The manager never looked at his application or did anything with it.  The other manager said she was going to e-mail him and ask why.  We never heard back.  I told Fiance that it was a sure sign that he wasn’t interested and he wouldn’t get the job.  FI was still confident, but a few days later, Target e-mailed him denying him the position.

It’s so frustrating to see someone who’s trying so hard to wait around and HOPE they get a call back.  So sorry you two are going through this as well.  I wish you the best.

Sounds to me like filling the position isn’t exactly a priority for the hiring manager, period.

Wow. Unless he is really desperate for the job, I would not put any more effort into this. If they call, great since he already did all the prep work, use the phone interview as practice. If they don’t call, oh well.

This is very annoying. I do all the hiring for my company and I would never treat anyone this way. I would like to add that about 60% of people I schedule interviews with do not show up or call and cancel. My day is scheduled around these interviews so it is very frustrating and I can u understand why you are so mad about this.
