    I'm glad to hear mate, Tegan works for the NBN, it's disconcerting to always hear complaints about them, when thats actually a misconception. Lucky bugger, can't wait for it at my place.

    not angry, but disappointed.
    seems I didn't get a job upgrade i went for last week.
    most expensive interview i've ever done, about $800 out of pocket just to get to it, accom, fuel, lost days pay, meals etc.
    at my age that signals the end of progression in my line of work, where I am now is as good as it's going to be until i give up all together.
    i'd been wanting to improve my position for years and this opportunity came up.
    i don't know what i'm going to do now, i still have a position & will until I leave, but this role has fucken ruined me.
    .. give me land lots of land under starry skies above, don't fence me in ...

    Yeah i went for a big job a few months ago. I am 20 years in with the company i am with and above me a a flat line. I put 8 hours at least into the application and i believed it stood out as a strong application. I did not even get to first round. I was surprised. It would have been a career change at 50 but i was excited by this new venture. Oh Well, try and carve out what i have for another 15 years i suppose.

    Every job description they put out includes "must have excellent verbal and written communication skills" yet they don't tell the applicants that weren't successful they weren't successful, you just sit there wondering for ever with not a word mentioned.

    #@$k'em.

    Yeah ARB did that to me when I went for an interview at their head office three years ago. The general manager asks why i want to work for ARB, so you just tell them what they want to hear. Then he asks what do I hope to get out of working for ARB. My response was, "your job, I don't intend on staying on in a low role, I intend to climb the ladder to the top". Needless to say the look on his face was priceless, and yep, they didn't bother telling me if I got the job.
    Just as well as I found out they pay was a measily $45k p/a, plus expected overtime. The job I have now leaves this for dust thank god.

    Its funny how we all seem to have been snared at one time or another. I drove down to Bairnsdale for an interview, in fact saw 6 different managers as part of the process then they lowballed me by 50K to what they advertised - 'oh no, we never intended to pay that, we just don't want to cut our selection pool so in order to get the best candidates, we set the pay banding high' - I kid you not, word for word. I stood up, thanked them for wasting my time and walked out - turkeys.
