Just a very brief question.
I have an unfortunate situation where within a company a year and 8 months ago, I took a job as a front desk agent after I had moved up to Chicago on my own. The only other person who I knew in the city worked as a manager at a different hotel in the city. Upon hearing i had moved to Chicago, he had contacted me asking if I would like to work for their company. After much deliberation, I decided that I needed to be in environment where I knew at least one person in the city, in order to better transition. I went into the company I was first employed with, and verbally attempted to give my two weeks.. however the manager declined and set me home that day. I was employed at the company for under two weeks.
Fast forwarding to present time, I had applied for a sales position within the same company. When filling out the profile, I had checked that I was previously employed by Hilton as if there were any issues previously, I wanted them to be known up front and visible in my application. However, the job did not appear on my resume due to the short period of time I had worked there.
Shortly after, I was contacted by an off-site talent acquisition agent, who sent me the link for a video interview
. I was then contacted again by the same agent for an in person interview, and two in person interviews later I was given an offer letter, contingent on the background check coming in clear. That Monday, I was told that the background check had come in clear. I confirmed with both the offsite talent agent and the HR manager of the physical property that I should put in my two weeks since my background check came in to their liking, to which they both agreed. The fact that I had previously worked for Hilton never came up during the interview process or with the talent acquisition agent, despite being on my profile the entire time.
Since they had both confirmed to put my two weeks in, and sent me an orientation letter welcoming me to the team, I had done so right away. 5 days prior to me starting the job and two days prior to my last day at my current job, the talent recruiter contacted me saying the HR manager had "noticed" I had selected that I had worked for the company before, and wanted to know the hotel I had worked at as they needed to verify if I was able to be rehired or not. The next day, I was told that my job offer was rescinded in an email, without any reason why. I tried to ask, and I was told they were "unable to tell me why".
Though I know it may have something to do with the initial job, do I have any rights in this situation? Although I am not at this point looking to pursue anything legally, I just feel as though this was bad practice on their part as now I will be unemployed in two days- my old job has already filled my role.
