    On a serious note though, sorry to hear that, sounds frustrating. Any reason why?

    They did not specify. They told me they would ring on Friday and never did. Then sent me a rejection letter.

    this ^^^ any company who would do that to a potential employee would have treated you worse further down the line

    if they're a big company I'd join glassdoor or something and leave a review

    In my experience this usually happens when a candidate with the same experience/qualifications etc as you accepts a lower salary offer after you're offered the role.

    Totally sucks and not a lot that can be done. Best of luck for the future

    It might be worth just ringing them and asking for an explanation why. If nothing else, at least you know why and it will give you closure/piece of mind.

    Totally agree here. Calling and politely asking for feedback can be really useful, shows an edge of professionalism and humility as well which may make them think twice (although I'd tell them were to go if they flip flopped me like that )

    Then as others have said, a lucky escape. If that's what they're like with potential employees, imagine how they treat actual employees
