You are the only one who applied, but...
Someone asked Fred Bocker, president of Fishal & Blocker HR Associates, about a recent interview. The job hunter had applied for a job and was the only candidate—but was offered a lower job instead. Was this bait-and-switch?
Bocker said, no, they hadn’t found an assistant manager, but had liked him enough to offer another job that they thought suited him.
If you still want to be a manager, ask about the career path in such a situation. Would you eventually move up to manager, or was this pretty much it?
It’s not like all you have to do is show up and get the prize because you are the only one there.
