I feel that the HR people try to look for ANY possible excuse to not accept you. I went through the entire interview process, (2 interviews in a single day) and told I got the job. 2 days later I heard back from the recruiter to make the formal offer. I accepted of course. I did ask if I could wait a couple days to complete the drug test only because I'd just become unemployed and my start date for TWC wasn't for another month which meant I'd have NO INCOME for a month while I waited. I needed the extra two days because I needed to apply for public assistance to have SOME money to get me through for the month that I would be unemployed, and it is a long process. I also needed to make sure I would at least have busfare to get to the drug testing site for the test. I didn't really say all of this to her, but I asked if there was any way we could wait till Monday.
She said no, because the offer starts from the time of the phone call and there is no way to put it on hold; it gets time-stamped from the time of the offer and you're allowed 48 hours to complete everything, so I was cool with that. I was still going to make it happen with or without the extra time allotment. No problem. Anyway, about an hour later, I get an email claiming that the offer has been rescinded and she claims the reason for the rescission is that based on our conversation, it does not support that I'd be able to commit to the 9 weeks of training that wouldn't be for a month from now.
To me, it comes off as extremely shady. She didn't even allow me the proper 48 hours as originally discussed, before rescinding the offer. Another friend of mine said he got did the same way, she basically looked for any reason she could to not take him.
It frustrates me that I went through all that trouble to get the job, only to be told I now didn't get the job. I really want to know if there is any way to contact her superiors. If anyone knows, please feel free to post it here. I'd appreciate it.
