Not saying which company yet, as I want to get a formal response from their HR Director, but one very large train company has been behaving utterly disgustingly. I'm quite fortunate to already have quite a decent job, but I feel sorry for those on here who've been trying very hard over long periods of time carefully applying for each job that comes up. I was sat with two managers the other night in the pub and one asked where I was working now, and whether I'd applyed to go over to their company. It was mentioned that they were disgusted that HR had told them..... "Oh there's about 800+ applications for that job, just got through the first few and pull out the first ten suitable ones. Don't worry about the rest." This does contradict with the spiel they put under their "working for us" section so I will be interested to see if they bother respond. I know some bad employers do this, but not a company that portrays itself as whiter than white, despite not caring about 750+ people's 2 hours each spent applying. Will let you know soon which company has (openly) done this if they don't give me a suitable reason.
