Interview Time

I'll be leaving home in about 10 minutes and will be in the hot seat at the top of the hour. I expect that this will be a more professionally conducted interview than my last one, which was pretty-much a waste of my time.

Good luck, Z. I would be sure the company comes up to my expectations. Ask questions, and be who you are.

Thanks for all your good wishes... I think it helped. The interview went well. It was a 'professional conversation' (which I like because I have the goods but don't like being grilled). I was the first person spoken to, so they're still talking to people today and tomorrow. They'll take the top two to a second and final interview. I'll find out whether they want me to come back before the end of this week.

You're right, mish... good advice. I always ask a lot of questions (it's easier to ask than to be grilled - - I like to "turn" the interview around wherever possible).

My reply was not about turning the interview around, but to make sure you ask the questions you need to ask about the company etc. Of course, it's never a good policy to ask - how much vacation time do I get?

It's funny 'cause she discussed all the company's benefits (including vacation) except PAY! I know it would be pretty decent but I didn't think it was prudent to ask at this time.
