I interviewed for a role recently and wasn't selected in the end, probably due to the fact that I was interviewed for the wrong role.
The details of the botched process can be found here.
The company had initially expressed interest to reimburse the travel expenses. As I was wary about it, I used the cheapest trains to get there. It amounts to £27.
Quite recently the company replied to my followup email saying that 'they have gone ahead with other candidates'. I asked them whether they could reimburse the travel expenses as initially agreed & they said 'they would be happy to'.
I haven't send the receipts to them , so they don't know the amount.
My question is: would it seem petty to ask them to reimburse this small amount?
NB: £25 Can buy you a 3 course meal in the UK. So I guess its not a petty amount. Its relative I guess.
