Someone said :
That happened me before. And the interviewer was so rude and dismissive to me during the interview.
It's awful. Once I did a 4 hour translation test for nothing because that vacancy had been opened purely to make someone who already did that job as a contractor an internal employee.
They didn't even bother giving me and others the result. Worst, because of a rule they had where you were barred from applying to the same kind of position for a year after an unsuccessful attempt I lost the chance of applying to a contract position they opened up later, for which I actually had a chance of being successful.
