This afternoon, at 3:21pm PST I received the following email:

Thank you for applying for the Pharmacy Technician (certified) with {pharmacy where I had job interview}. This position has been filled. We will keep your information in our database for consideration for future openings.
Sincerely,
{female name}
Vice President,
{aforementioned pharmacy}

At 3:42pm PST, I received the very same email again. I have a few things to say about all of this.
1 – if you’re the low-wage administrative assistant in charge of sending out the form emails informing people that they didn’t get hired, take a few extra seconds to put a check mark next to the names after sending, so you don’t send it twice. Better yet, BCC the whole group and send ’em at the same time. That way you can spend the rest of your shift on the internet.
2 – The Pharmacy Technician? Is that like The Pope, or The Queen?  How about thank you for applying for the position of Certified Pharmacy Technician? If you’re the low-wage administrative assistant in charge of sending out the form emails telling people they didn’t get hired, take a few extra seconds to proof read. That way you don’t sound like an uneducated boob.
3 – Vice President my ass.
