I work part time. A full time position at work came open which I applied for. Even though I already work there I still had to apply like I was a new applicant. I spoke with my boss about the position. He is the one who would do the hiring. He," highly encouraged me to apply," three times in one conversation. I had my interview last week. I received a generic email from HR today stating the position was filled and thanked me for applying. So pissed off!
