Honestly, you know it has to be pretty crappy if a temp who's been doing the job for almost a year turned down an offer to make it a permenant job.
I was thinking about it some more after I posted and I can see what their argument likely is: "In an economy like this you're crazy to turn down any decent job offer."
I still think refusing it is the right move, especially knowing that the temp turned the job down. Hmm... wonder if there is any way you could talk to the temp? He could give you all the nitty gritty and explain exactly why he refused the job... is it possible that he could have refused the position for a reason other than the job sucks?
