Well, I was waiting for Goober to wade in with more
info., but I got the impression this was not a bait
and switch. That is, I got the impression it was not a
case where someone lied to you on the phone about
interviewing for a tech writing job and showing up and
you find out it's a rectruitment session for
encyclopedia salesmen.

I got the impression it was more about, you
interviewed at a bonafied company for a tech writing
position that existed, took the bonafide tech writing
job, and then something the employer promised or told
you was the case turned out to be not the case.


Goober? Close? You there? Bin fired? <g>
