startup pulled offer because im still interviewing elsewhere?

According to them, they found out that Im still interviewing elsewhere and they take their offers ‘very seriously’. This is funny because Im only interviewing at one other company which is a HUGE moonshot, I probably have 1% chance of making it in but I thought... who cares lets interview for fun.

What the hell is their problem? And I think it was a blind user who snitched, or a recruiter, so be careful guys...

After seeing this, it made me respect my current employer so much more. At least Wayfair pays generously for this area and they dont pull bs like this. Wayfair isnt half bad guys, definitely take a look at their job postings if youre interested.

    If a company is willing to pull an offer because you’re considering all options, they aren’t the one for you. I promise. Don’t sweat it, keep killing it and move on.

    Cheers

      Thanks man, really appreciate it. Is it equally as bad if I accepted though? Does that matter?

      If they still let you accept, the ‘offer pull’ was likely a tactic to get you to accept. I guess it’s different if you didn’t have other offers on the table, but definitely would have been a red flag for me.

      I meant what if I accepted and continued to shop around, is that ok?

      If you’re willing to accept and still shop, I’d go back to my original point in saying it’s probably not the right company for you. If you’re not in a bad place with your current company, I’d decline your offer and wait for the right thing to come. Yes, you could accept and keep shopping.. is that the right thing to do? No. At the end of the day it’s your career and you have to do what’s best for you.

      I see - but is it true that you could accept a job and say yes, this would be an amazing place to work. But.. hey, NASA would be cool too but my chance to get in is so low.. well.. if they are willing to talk to me.. maybe I should give it a shot. Is that in bad faith? I don’t think so. It’s just taking whatever opportunities life throws at you and try to not live with regrets.

      Report him to Blind. Blind may have a way to link the username to the original id.

      Do you know this for sure? Either way sounds like you dodged a bullet there with the response they gave you.

    At least try to report that username and company name to Blind. They may be able to map that guy and find him.

      I reported him to Blind, he obviously breached the anonymous work place chat slogan of this forum. I don’t think he’s in a right state of mind. I don’t want to jump to conclusions but he’s a pathetic excuse for a human

      He is a psychopath. Can you share his company name if that doesn’t reveal your identity? You will receive an email from Blind. I had to report some users before and they did the right thing.

      I’m not a snitch lol.. unlike some people. It’s for the better I think.

    You just dodge a bullet. That company probably won’t work for long. Good luck finding another!

    Could it be that someone from the startup was on blind and saw your post? Instead of some unrelated third party snitching.

      Yes, how could they be? The odds are very low. I never mentioned anything about having an offer in the thread, I just asked for a referral to Uber.
