Interviewed for a job last week. I've got 10+ years of experience in the field, my experience fits the requirements to a T, and the interview went really well (my opinion). I was one of six people they interviewed out of 200+ applicants. They told me they would let me know within a week or so if I would be 1 of the 2 selected for the 2nd round of interviews. I get a call today saying I was the perfect candidate, I was everything they were looking for, but I live too far away and they know it wouldn't work out in the long-term, and that they decided to restart the entire process. My commute from home to work would be about 40 miles, which really doesn't seem like that much to me, and it's literally 95% freeway. I've done plenty of hiring and interviewing in the past, and I've never called a candidate and told them they lived too far away. I honestly would feel much better if they told me I wasn't the right guy for the position, and I don't know what reason they would have to not be honest with me, so I can only assume that the distance thing was the only thing standing in the way. He went so far as telling me that if I ever moved closer that he would save my information and to give him a call. Is this legit? Anyone ever heard of that before? Are they just trying to be nice by giving me some bs reason? I'm planning on calling the guy back in the am and discussing it, I really have nothing to lose. Sorry, that got a little longer than I planned.
