So as many of you may know, I just started working at a new job, where batman is the king of credit sales.
I'm still looking for bigger and better, but for now, meh, it's a job.
I had an interview Tuesday that I was really psyched about. Good job description, good pay, and it fits my experiences a little more.
I showed up to the interview, filled out the necessary 'check in' paperwork, and waited. Met my interviewer, obligatory handshake, and we went to his office to begin.
15 minutes into the interview, everything was going great. He was asking questions that I had great answers to, and I was getting a good vibe for this. The chemistry was awesome.
"I see you're from California! How cool, I did my mission there! It's really gorgeous down there. Where did you do your mission?"
"Oh, sorry. I'm not LDS..."

He became silent for a second. The smile slowly wiped from his face...
"Oh. I'm sorry. I just assumed...I..."
And then the interview got back on track, but with a MUCH different tone. All of a sudden I wasn't getting that good vibe anymore.
After 2-3 softball questions, he stood up to shake my hand.
"Well, I'm not sure if you're the perfect fit for this company, but we will keep your resume on file, and let you know if things end up working out, mmmk?"
So I was discriminated against, because I'm not mormon. Ouch.
I didn't get a job. Because my religious choices didn't match his.
I'm still stunned. But I have another interview this morning. Just in case this happens again, I will be recording the conversation. ACLU anyone?
