Interviewed for an industry position last week and asked my interviewers what my hours would look like. They answered "uhh 40?" with a confused look.

Either public accounting really screwed up my view on work hours, or this is just an abnormally relaxed company.

What questions do they usually ask in a global entry interview?

I need advice. I don’t know what’s wrong with me. 3 years ago I left a small contracting company that I was at for 2.5 years. Because I had an offer with Big 4 & I was chasing brand on my resume - which did open up lots of doors for me. That small company was still to this day one of the best I had worked for. Smart, caring people. Pay was ok, but they had amazing WLB like 9/80. After Big 4, I started at GH for 3 months. Hated it. Quit and left to industry where I’m at now. Continued in comments
