    I had two interviews and was being set up for a third when the department manager called me and told me that their division had been overstaffed, but he told me to reapply the next round of hiring.

Then when you are scheduled to meet with your potential client group and they arrive significantly late for their interview with no apology or explanation, it does not make you feel any better about why you would want to work there
