So this is probably the reason the process has been held up for so damn long. The competition ended in April, but they're talking about not even doing testing until mid-June, which will be two months from the competition close date. They've already had to give me two one-month extensions, because my last contract ended in March. I'm way more qualified, but she's got seniority. As in, she's already got a permanent position. Whereas if I'm not rehired, I'm unemployed.
I know it's petty and all but I'm currently extremely annoyed with her. Like, JFC, you already have a job. This one doesn't even pay more than your current one. You apply to every permanent position that gets posted, which I know because you gossip about it to all and sundry. Leave mine alone.
