Out of curiosity, did they give you any feedback? Was it because of your condescending attitude?

BCG1 apologized. That's nice.

I remember applying to Dave and Busters and almost didn't get the job because they said I was over qualified...BUT ......They asked me on the interview ....why did I want to work there?? I told him, I get that over qualification, but I just want to hang out in a loud noisy place and watch people enjoy life..... And I'm really good at working with clients, so this could be great and I'm an easy employee lol. Got the job, worked humbly, enjoyed my time, left when I was ready. He was right, I was def older than the rest of my team, but we had a blast.

In 2009 I applied at McDonald's. In the interview the manager asks me "Yall got uh MBA? We got uh feller with one of them who need a job." I learned to come more prepared for future interviews.

They clearly saw you were overqualified so therefore they selected a candidate who was a better fit.

Hey! Can anyone assist with what can be claimed as workers comp? I was at work when I had my first episode of vertigo. Everything was spinning, wouldn't stop, and I couldn't stand or sit. I was freaking out and asked to be rushed to ER. Work paid for the ambulance. No physical injury. Insurance apparently didn't cover emergency charges. The out of pocket expense is about $2.5k and was wondering if I can claim this as workers comp. Again, no physical injury though.
