Bad reasons for not accepting jobs #32445

Sign in to follow this  


So got back in contact with EA today, who have apparently been trying to get hold of me for a while. Left my mobile in Bristol so haven't been getting calls! Why they never e-mailed is unclear.

I explained my reasons and apparently I'm the first person the HR girl ever had decline! Weird, she also said I'm the only person that listed on of the reasons for declining as 'walking to work'. But to me it makes financial sense not having to buy a car, run a car, insure a car etc. etc. That probably doesn't make a lot of sense to the Americans hereabouts, unless they live in a city centre. I literally have all the amenities I need within 20 minutes walk, the flight back to Bristol is a two hour train/bus ride and a 40 minute flight. If I book early enough that would cost me about 1/3 of a one-way trip by car!
