    Interview

    Waste of my time, I was told they already had an ex coastie that was retiring in Norfolk VA was going to fill the position.Waste of my time, I was told in the beginning they already had an ex coastie that was retiring in Norfolk VA was going to fill the position. It didn’t matter that I felt my qualification were great for the job, the 3 interviewers running the interview didn’t want to hear my qualifications. This is the third time I’ve had such an interview. Each time I tell myself “never again am I going to apply for a job with these clowns” but I did.
