Curious if others think it is unprofessional to take a potential job candidate to lunch (with other current employees) after an interview with management. Then after lunch bring them back to do a second less formal interview with said current employees who would essentially be co-workers if this candidate was hired.

One of my old job right after interviewing they took me to job shadow for a day without hiring me yet. But they did hire me

Usually, companies will tell you how long the interview process will take so you can reserve time for them.

Companies do that all the time. It is part of the interview process to see how you interact in a more relaxed environment.

Not at all. It's quite normal, my company did this with me. It's another decision-making tool HR uses duribg the process.

No that is not at all unprofessional. I actually had a company I was interviewing with do this for me. I really enjoyed getting to go to a casual lunch and get to know some of the folks I would be working with.

I don't think so. I think they are now trying to get you in the circle and see how you interact with others. This is a common practice in some companies.

Have an Amazon PM “phone interview” this week (pre-loop) and recruiter confirmed it’s just a phone interview but will be facilitated via Amazon Chime.
