What is the name of your state?MAWhat is the name of your state?
My living situation changed last year and my 25 mile commute to work became 170 miles, which I did for a year before I started looking for a new job last May. I had a job interview that went AWESOME and I was very qualified for the position. Unfortunately, the VP was not impressed with the commute that I would have (80 miles) and he said no. The hiring manager I interviewed with wrote the VP emails advocating my hire and it was consistently declined because of 'commute reasons'.
I have an email from the hiring manager that states my qualifications are IDEAL for the open position, but my commute was bad.
The position is STILL open, and does not say anywhere that local applicant ONLY need apply. I expressed to them my comfort at the commute, but to no avail.
What do you all think of this?
