To me, sounds like he's using the "final boss" thing metaphorically, not like I'm meeting an actual boss in another interview. Either way, good news.
sounds wicked!

They moved crazy fast. I just had my interview Thursday, thanked them Friday, and here we are Tuesday with an unofficial offer... I'm excited. This is a huge company that's been growing every year since 1980.

I simply cannot wait to hand in my resignation. Feel bad for my buddy, he keeps saying how much his life is going to suck and they're going to be screwed without me.

Sounds like my interview process with the company I work for now, though the ending was a little different and I think they were trolling me.

Day 0: Put in my resume with the company

Day 1: Get called for a phone interview. Told if they decide to move on I'll find out late next week.

Day 2: (yes, literally the next day, not late next week), I get a phone call to come to an interview at the office the following Monday.

Day:3-4 Weekend

Day 5: Interview. It was a panel interview with 7 people, 4 on video conference. Yup, interviewed by 7 people at once. Was told I'll find out late next week if they want to continue on with me.

Day 6: I get a call to do another interview and want to schedule for 2 days out.

Day 7:

Day 8: Interview. This time a panel of 7 people again, different 7 people. Get told that if they want to continue with me I'll find out late next week, which would be the background check.

Day 8 again: 30 minutes after the interview, on my way home, I haven't even got home yet, I get a phone call telling me they want me to do the background check. I get home and do the background check immediately. Background check said it would take at least 1 week to complete. I am able to check the status as it is performed. Mine gets completed in 2 hours.

Day 9-25'ish: I hear nothing back from them.

Day 26 or so: I get a phone call with the job offer and told I need to be in Denver 3 days later for the on boarding.

Everything was so fast, and then they leave me hanging for like 2'ish weeks.
I swear they were trolling me.

Haha. Well, this one contacted me literally two hours after I submitted my resume. They liked that I've been at my current job for 9 years and said that's hard to come by for someone my age. This will only be my second full time job.

Interview.

Day 26 or so
Last year I took a new job, same company. I interviewed, never heard anything for about six months, figured I simply didn't get it. Then I heard from HR and they said I got it, and let's have a follow up interview to decide specifics. Then it took them another few months to get that stuff ironed out.

Well, they told me they forgot to give me three more tests (All office based, simple. Sure I aced them). I heard back Friday and the HR woman apologized for having me take so many tests and said it was just for corporate HR red tape and once they reviewed them, they'd move forward with the background checks and whatnot.

I haven't heard anything since Friday. Followed up today with an email, didn't hear back. Starting to get a bit worried, but I'm not sure if the government shutdown affects background checks or not.

Balls.

Got a reply back saying she's still waiting for corporate to do its thing, and sometimes that can take awhile. Guess I have to be patient. Not sure how much longer I can last at this place with the disrespect going on

You’re in, quit worrying. Finish strong at the current job then bounce to the new place.

Have some of that booze you’re stockpiling and chill

Pretty sure I semi ruined alcohol again for myself after that bender

If I don't get the job I'm coming for you

This is all going to be interesting. It'll be the first time I ever hand in a resignation and go through all the corporate parts of leaving a position as this was my first real, full-time job.

Well, hopefully I do get it because somehow my current job caught wind I likely had a new offer. I got called into the owner's office today and he told me someone "overheard" someone in our office talking about it, and that they take that as the first day of the two week notice. Told me it's common practice to just pay you out for your final two weeks, so today (yesterday now) was officially my last day. Good riddance, nothing but egomaniac owners anyway. Bunch of pussies for doing it this way without the head guy even showing his face, though I'm sure it was all his idea to begin with. Gave this garbage company 9 years of my life, got no thanks for the entirety, and was shown the door out of the blue today. Hope they have fun figuring out all the systems I knew, and I was the only source of hardware knowledge in the place.

Bunch of pussies for doing it this way without the head guy even showing his face, though I'm sure it was all his idea to begin with. Gave this garbage company 9 years of my life, got no thanks for the entirety, and was shown the door out of the blue today. Hope they have fun figuring out all the systems I knew, and I was the only source of hardware knowledge in the place.
What a shithole company.

I'm mainly pissed because they caught my so off guard I didn't get to say anything really. Not that it would make any difference I suppose, it's just annoying they think I'm so dumb that I would accept their "it's company policy" when I've watched 6 other people give notice before including my last boss, who was there 3 weeks transferring knowledge. I really hope they get what's coming to them for being such two faced shitholes, I don't see the company lasting much longer. Every single person who isn't a manager hates it there, and I know 3 other people actively looking for new jobs.

Yeah, that is a ridiculous reason for firing and just demonstrates your point about it being a shitty place to be.


Hope this new one can pull through quickly so you're not just in limbo.

It almost sounds like they treated you like **** because they never thought you'd stand up for yourself. On to better pastures my friend. I really hope you get the job.

Could have been done through the background check, previous/current employer gets contacted to verify information.

Go down to the unemployment office, start your unemployment process so you can get your waiting week out of the way in case this doesn't pan out, or takes longer than expected. Also document everything that was said in the meeting before they "forced" your notice because you where looking for another job, as it will help if they deny your unemployment. Also document that other's have given notice and where allowed to work out such notice. Make sure you document that you did not give notice, that they just took your looking for a job as y our notice and it was not by your choice, as well as anything else you deem important. Also, if you know of anyone else that they knew was looking for other job opportunities, and they did not issues a "forced" notice to them, document that as well.

All though PA is an at will employment state, It doesn't mean they can have different set of rules for each employee, specially with giving notice. Allowing other's to work out their notice sets a precedent, so you may have recourse if you don't get the new job. I would take the two weeks they are paying you and talk to a lawyer, as well to see if you have any options in case you need them. You may not, but it is worth it to you and your family to check it out.

Of course, we all hope you get the job and can just leave that shitty company behind you for ever.

Either way, they did you a favor, and your future will be brighter and better no matter what happens from this day forward.

Any place of employment should have people that other people want. The only thing your company could ever give you crap about is whether you were looking for another job on company time (which I have seen plenty of times). That being said, it's a small world, and you never know but the new job might have someone at their office who is in connected with someone in your current job. There is always a risk when you begin a job search that people find out (any time someone changes their profile pic on Linkedin makes me wonder...).

But that being said....as long you did it on your time, your current employer can't say sheeeeeet.

Have you ever browsed Rage3d on company computers or their wifi network? Maybe they made the connection through this thread.

All the time, and not a chance. I was the only one in the group with any knowledge of that stuff and I know for a fact we didn't track where our users went.
