When you think about it, what kind of company would call you and lead you to believe that you had an offer of employment, only to find out that there were a few more paperwork hoops to jump through before you even got a Contingent Offer, which by the way, means nothing.
I would say that they promise one thing and it's a lie. And there was some paperwork thing that they said they could do for me, and it seems I have to do it myself. This situation gives me pause. The HR person went on and on about not putting people in place by misleading them about the job. Hmmmm. Methinks thou dost protest too much?
