    Interview

    -boring. The DM who interviewed me was polite and nice, but seemed to be visibly bored by the process. I got the job, so I know it wasn't a negative sign. I think he was just bored by having to do the interview. -misleading. He told me that he had to interview some other candidates after me. This, I found out, was a lie. You can say all you want that, well that's what they have to say. But that's bs. Have some integrity, Chase. -I tested the DM with some upper level finance questions. He didn't have any answer. I had to try hard not to laugh at him. Then again, being a DM means you're good at following and implementing orders, not being intelligent

    Interview

    Hiring managers are mostly women who do not have proper educational and professional qualities to do their jobs. They either do not understan experience and skills of high-qualified candidates or prefer not to analize them. Profesional qualities and knowledge of candidates are not intersting for these managers. Most of them want to hire goog-looking men. These women-supresivors have become a big liability to the company. They are usually often trasferred around ars they are unqualified for positions they get. They create many labor-related problems for every employer in the US.
