I know this guy will show his true colors in no time flat- and it WILL show up in that company. Waywardson just sent a Thank You to the HR person he was dealing with and told her to keep him in mind for future openings. I mean, they were talking about fast-tracking him and corporate positions before this guy came into the picture!
And, he named H's co-managers in the interview, so that made us a bit uncomfortable because H didn't want his current job to know he's looking, but this guy happens to live in the town where H's job is, so he's probably already tipped the others off.
Years back, Waywardson had the misfortune of having an Owner who put his trust in a psychopath and put him in the GM position over him. At the meeting where the owner announced this guy was coming in, one of the other managers said he was a snake, a psychopath, and she would NOT work with him. She took off immediately and I wish Waywardson had followed suit. Anyway, THAT guy was the nastiest person I've ever known and EVEN HE doesn't have negative comments about him all over the internet like THIS guy!! Waywardson definitely dodged a bullet this time!! This way, the guy cut him out at the beginning, so he still has a chance with the company at a later date. If he had gotten in now, this guy would have done all of the typical undermining, character assassination, etc. that is so common for NPDs, and he would have destroyed H's reputation with the company.
I'm actually relieved, now! It's so strange how you can go through such a tremendous range of emotions in ONE DAY!!
