Short and to the point

Okay I need to make this short because there's tons of things I need to do: pack up things, dinners, graduation stuff, etc.

The interview, or as I like to call it, the non-interview.

The phone interview was set for 12/noon and I waited patiently with my cell and laptop ready to go. Noon comes by and no one is calling. I figured I should wait a little bit and after playing some minesweeper I realize that it's now 12:30. Huh? Maybe they meant the interview was for 12:30 so I check my email and it does in fact still say noon. I decide to wait five more minutes.

Five minutes later I call the person who set up the interview (but would not give it, that was another lady). The phone rang and it went straight to voicemail. She was out but she said a number to call for recruiting. I called that number and explained the situation and they informed me that the first lady I called no longer works at the company!
Great.
But they did transfer me to the lady who was going to give me the interview. She immediately picked up and apologized many times. She said she had my info, but was not told what time to call. She apologized again and then we needed to set up a new time for the interview. So the interview is not set for 10:30 am tomorrow morning, before I head out to a graduation bbq.
Frustrating, but the lady was incredibly nice.

I'll report on the interview sometime tomorrow.

Sorry that happened, but that's business. Things happen that way every once in awhile.

Good luck in your interview.
