My sister texted me this afternoon that she had vertigo.  She told me that it started yesterday, but was worse today. During our text conversation (I was working), I asked her a bunch of questions, and she said some things that concerned me, so I asked her who she could call to take her to urgent care.  No one was available.  I told her to call 9-1-1.  She decided to ask her husband to leave work instead, so he came home and took her to the E/D.  That was 4 hours ago.  No news yet, no answer on the phone.  EEEP!  They were supposed to start a road trip tomorrow that will bring them to Dragons' Roost this weekend.

That ending happens way too often.  Someone is passed over for the job, but is charged with training the person who gets it.  Or  the person who is passed over takes it upon himself/herself voluntarily because he or she actually takes pride in his or her work and wants to do what is right even after, sometimes, being treated rather shabbily.

Given the fact that he applied for the position, I never actually stood a chance. I just thought I'd give it a try....
Thanks for all of the support, just the same!

Sorry to hear this. Dang, what a terrible company. It would be great if you could get out of there, but the job market is tough for us non-Millenials.
 
A  few years ago, I was informed by the president of a company I interviewed with that I would be a "great fit" for the job I interviewed for but that they decided to go with someone younger. Ugh.

We have several dept heads at my hotel in their 20's and 30's. Just tonight the security guy and I were talking about how experience used to count for something but now it means nothing. 

 
Clearly, blatantly, it does not.  It's all about who you are, and who you know outside of work.

Thanks, everyone.... I think it went okay.  It was a panel interview, with my boss, my department supervisor, and one person from another office to provide some balance, I guess.  They didn't ask me anything about my years of experience in management and training personnel—how much sense does that make?  My guess is that I was the only applicant with experience.....so I worked that information into my answers to the set of questions that they asked all interviewees.

No decision until next week.  

 
Were they doing contextual interviewing?  In other words, were they asking you questions like "Tell me about a time you had to resolve a conflict between two employees and you thought it ended particularly well?"  That's what we do here with interviews, and folks are generally kind of freaked out that we never ask specifically about their positions in the past or anything like that.  

In any event, i'm sure you did great.  Good luck!
