I have my final interviews on Thursday and Friday and thinking of cancelling because of all the horrible things I heard. I do not mind working hard but I also not looking to be on 24/7. I also heard people are mean and stabbing in the backs happen a lot. Is any of this true?

The role I am interviewing for is Sr UX Researcher, as of now in the physical stores team.

So finished interviews with PwC early last week. The recruiter let me know Friday that they want to move forward with an offer. I followed up with the recruiter earlier this week to see if she had an ETA when the offer would be ready, what the base would be & if she could send the benefits package. She responded basically that they are moving forward with me and ignored all my questions. Asked again this morning & nothing. I have other offers but this is the one I want 😩 what do I do?

While I’m excited about the “tenured A/C offsite”, I’m frustrated that CV is expecting us to share a hotel room with colleagues.

Based on all of the sources (eg friends who work at a different company, CVers who have worked elsewhere) that I talked with, an employer should not expect employees to share hotel rooms during business travels. It just makes me feel belittled as a CV employee.

Days of this happens and he ends up more constipated and I would have to give him the diapers so he can go and be in less discomfort. Suggestions/advice?

Now things are different but still this question comes up and I'm struggling to answer it.
