    My would be supervisor met me at a restaurant, and basically confirmed that on the strength of the recommendation he was already prepared to recommend I be hired. He then proceeded to list what the job expectations were. He also explained what the responsibilities and tools of the role would be. Both of those were exaggerated beyond reality.
