    Interview

    Phone interview was scheduled through email and went smoothly. A few days later, HR Representative set up an in-person interview in seven days. Day of the interview, HR person calls two hours before scheduled interview to say it was cancelled. I asked what the problem was, and was told 'I am going to have to check with my supervisor.' I then ask if we will reschedule, she was silent then said 'I will have to check with someone if we are going to reschedule. I then ask if I was still being considered, and after she was silent for a few seconds she finally admitted, 'I accidentally made the interview with you instead of someone else.' She lied several times and made it look like this was no big deal when in fact, it was her fault and she was trying to cover up that she made a mistake. This was for the Fort Worth office.
