I applied for a position at a company. The job ad of this position said that they have a 'flexible working' option. I have my necessity, so I have to work remotely for a year (but I didn't indicate my necessity in the initial application because they didn't allow me to submit any cover letter).
After waiting for a few weeks, I got a response from an HR of that company. She wanted to have a call with me to discuss the next step. I replied to her quickly, through the same email address she contacted me, that I was available for the call. However, I noted in the reply that due to my necessity, I might have to work remotely. I will completely understand if she would reject me because of that reason.
But then, nothing happened. No call, No further email response at all.
Then I sent another reply to the original email she sent to follow up. Nothing happened again. One week later, I sent another new email to ask her (politely) whether I was still in the process or not. And then, I finally got an email from her. She said that she didn't receive any responses from me since my first reply, and the position I applied for had been offered to another candidate.
Yes, I feel irritated. To be honest, I don't believe that she didn't receive my responses because she contacted me first. So when I replied to her, the chance that my response emails might fall in her 'junk mail' inbox should be very low. If she replied to me like 'Sorry, we could not accept applicants who want to work remotely' or something like that -- it would be ok! But to say 'I didn't receive any responses from you' and say easily that 'We already offered the position to another applicant' was so irresponsible.
[I already got the answer that I shouldn't file a complaint against her. I might think too less. Thank you so much for all of your suggestions.]
