Based on what you wrote about the manager who interviewed you at the job site, I think it's better that you didn't get hired because that guy sounds like he's a lawsuit waiting to happen.

I will never ever meet these people again. Why is so difficult to contact a person to let them know the status of there employment. Complete amateur's, stay away. Less
