    Easy Interview

    Interview

    I applied online and about a week or two later I got an email from a manager saying they want to interview me.
    Interview was simple and easy. Didn't take too long either. Manager said he would email or call me the following Monday. Monday came and I didn't get anything so I emailed him back on Tuesday. No response. Gave him Wednesday to respond. Nothing. I emailed him again Thursday. No response. Weird how he has responded to my emails before, but now he decides to ignore me. I dropped it after I sent the two emails but got no reply.
