Bad luck. sorry it didn't work out.
It is always good to have an interview, even just a chat. A chance to check out the guy you will be working for.

 >>:-( Hi,Graham,sometimes you are so glad to get a job you don't know what you are letting yourself in for,I once worked for a boss from
hell,he told me in the interview that the job involved working some overtime,I ended working 7 days a week every week, I told him that in 4 weeks
time I needed the weekend off for a wedding in the family, 2 days before the weekend he told me about a job to be done that sat and sun
when I explained that I would not be there to do it he went into one ranting and raving that I had let him and the company down.This man
bullied everyone in the maintenance dept. but not me, I told him to make up my money as I was giving a weeks notice, I worked for that guy
every weekend for 6 months without a day off, when was I going to some time off,sometimes it is better to walk away from a job than being
unhappy,hope you get another job soon,Ray. >>:-( >>:-( >>:-( [size=78%]   [/size]

Probably why the job was vacant in the first place Graham - unfortunately, and because of the employment and economic situation, there seems to be a trend for employers returning to the old bowler hat and stick bull boy brigade - the floggings will continue until morale improves! 
                You may be well out of that one Graham. I do wish you sincere good luck for the future, regards, Tony.

In their wisdom the job centre sent my son for an interview for a driving job, he told them it was a waste of time as he hasn,t got a driving licence, they said if he didn,t attend they would stop his job seekers allowance....This is what your up against....Rod  %%   %%

I long for the day my job becomes vacant  {:-{
However the vacancy in my head is coming along nicely.  :-))

Seriously though, much better to have a job whilst looking for another. You get an employment record with less gaps. Life and employers can be unfair but that's the way it is. Though the job market is very hard these days, people are successful every day, so let's hope it's your day soon Graham.
