Tuesday, 8/11/15, I received a job offer from the company, that I accepted. Today (8/14/15), they rescinded it. They found someone internal. It would've been cheaper, since I went through a recruiter. 

The recruiter that received that phone call hung up on the CFO mid-sentence, and is most likely firing them as a client. In 13 years, she'd never seen someone walk back an offer.

I conducted myself very professionally with the recruiter ("that's crap; do they have any idea how awful that is?")  and they're mad for me. They've got me in front of a good employer here, and I hope to have good news soon!

I had already turned down two invitations to interview, because I had accepted the offer. I called one of those places and said, "They rescinded the offer because they found someone internal; i'm still interested in your position." I interview with them 10:30 am on Monday, 8/17/15.

Sorry that your offer was rescinded. It sounds like you dodged a bullet. If that's how they work, then you may want to keep looking elsewhere. Good luck on the search!

While it is so unprofessional that this happened unfortunately this happens. I have personally seen it more often on the side of the interviewee but in either case it is bad form. I echo that you dodged a bullet on this one. You do not want to be employed by a company that exhibits these behaviors. Luckily you found that out before it was too late.

Thats one to add to the delta file -

Good luck on the job search!
