Are they comfortable and confident without arrogance? People who exude stress and overwork are. And they will bring that to you everyday. Did they ask you the right questions? Did they listen or just wait to talk? Ask about what you want. What will make you happy. What you dislike. I’ve always found bosses who are super comfortable with themselves and confident in where they are and what they know who are concerned with keeping the people around them happy and fulfilled make the best bosses. Lateness happens. Reschedules happen. The other things are important.

If they talk about themselves the entire time, that might be a red flag. But if they want to talk about you the entire time, that’s a good sign they genuinely care about growing and developing talent. Not just being in charge

I have a final interview with a Director of a division for a Sr. Consultant role at EY. I am understanding that this interview is to figure out which projects I can staffed to.

But the Director was super rigorous and ended up rejecting me. This makes me nervous about my EY interview.
