Yes.

On a related subject, this reminds me of the last season 2 episode in King of the Hill where Buckley (who's officially 26 but I thought was 19 or 20) kills himself by his incompetence in a store-wide explosion caused by pulling propane tanks by the valve. Hank warned him but Buckley was the department manager scolding Hank; Hank worked with propane probably longer than Buckley even lived by that point but Hank was a trainee in the store Buckley worked in at the time and Buckley had an idea of false authority in his head. The company may have given Buckley a badge but it's not a shield against stupidity or disregarding warnings.


As a related real life anecdote:

I currently work stocking shelves at Home Depot over night. Though I don't interact directly with department heads and day managers very often, I do work with people who have. One of them worked for several years on day in lumber and hardware and was trained on all the relevant equipment (may have expired now, since he's been on the night shift longer than I've been there now). But he knows the hardware department head pretty well and several of the others, having worked under them. He is technically more qualified to run those departments than them because of his broad range of experience working on the stuff needed to run hardware and then some.

And despite other qualifications, they brought him in as a regular associate and he doesn't get to run anything. Just follow orders. So even pertinent expertise doesn't count.

Although it's not necessarily the case, maybe "over-qualified" means they want someone they can mold into their idea of what an employee should be. e.g. You might hesitate doing something they know is questionably unsafe.

Hey, it's a possibility.


It would also be a threat to anyone above you. If they can barely do the job they're looking to fill, and if anyone aboves them learn, it could lead to their usurpation.

Makes me feel a little better actually, I've always looked up to pinkie, but on the other hand, I'm filing for unemployment soon. I've applied for several jobs every week for months, I have a bachelor's degree, and yet I've still failed to pass every interview from sweeping floors, to teaching, to being an insurance agent.
