owner operators interview questions shared by candidates
How's your wife doing? What about her work/career if selected for this position?
Even though the opportunity is personal (singular, they're hiring you to be the owner/operator, not your wife/spouse). You need to go all-in. My advice - be ready to tell them you are willing to be a single income family with CFA as your only source of income. If they even sense you have a backup or will not give it your 100%, they'll pass. My current salary is equivalent to owner/operator of an average free-standing CFA, and my wife's salary is comparable. I believe that weighed heavily against "our" application. Even though we were willing to forfeit the salaries in exchange for the CFA lifestyle and the entrepreneurship opportunity, I failed to make that abundantly clear during the process.
Sorry - meant to add plus 1. Glaasdoor wouldn't allow me to change
