    Interview Details

    During the interview process, I was asked how good my day care was, because I would be expected to work overtime. This was totally inappropriate, if not illegal!

    • Are you willing to work as much overtime as it takes to get the job done?   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    There was no negotiation. When I tried, they just told me that anyone coming into the company in this position starts at the bottom of the pay for that position, no matter how much experience you have.
