Damn, why are interviews in industry more rigorous. I’ve had to meet 4x the amount of people than interviews in public.

Because you’ll be seeing them every day... if your currently in audit your in and out of the office and rolling on and off different teams. So if you don’t get along with someone it’s no big deal. Whereas in industry that could be a deal breaker.

B4 interviews are some of the easiest in the professional world, so everything else will seem more difficult/complex.

Yeah my last interview for big 4 was 2 people via video chat 30 min each and got the offer the next day. I’ve also sat for industry jobs that are 4 - 45 minute back-to-back interviews plus a 2 hour panel.

They aren’t interested in teaching and expect you to know your shit so they need to put in the effort to find out.

Often in industry you will be the only one at your level doing your role / duties. There is no where to hide if you are incompetent so we need to vet you to make sure you have the required knowledge and skills to do the job. In Big 4, they can shuffle you around on different engagements and find groups to stick you in while you learn. In industry, you need to be functional from the beginning.

Currently interviewing for a designer role at Tesla - wanted some advice. The hiring manager has seemed uninterested and always dropped off interviews early and without answering any of my questions. He also mentioned that he's lost 4 designers from the team recently (red flag!). I think it'd be a cool role, but it sounds like I'd be the only designer and there's not a ton of support, BUT if I do well - lots of room for growth and promotion. Plus internal transfers after a year also an option?

Thoughts?
