Have any of you notice recruiting coordinators ignore availability?

The recruiter asked for availability and I gave a wide range of times with the note I had no availability one afternoon (have to be on-site - would have to be a emergency to get out of). They scheduled the interview for that afternoon. This is the second time this has happened with them.

Do I have room to push back? I really hate my current job, but it’s annoying to me that’s it the one time I identified as a no.

Got a verbal offer for a sr consultant role at an FSI for 80K base, 8% bonus. Today, I see a job posting for the same job and company and the range is 68K-111K. The hiring manager in the interviews stated the range was 65-78K. HR just called and told me I have one day to decide. I haven't received the email/paper offer yet. This is leading me to feel off about this situation. What should I do? Its still a 15K pay bump for me.

Hello everyone,
I was unemployed for 1.5 years. After facing this struggle I decided to join family business. This year with one year of experience I applied to a few jobs and got some interviews. All of them had a question in common. Since you have a family business, you would be flexibleon the salary part right.
Isn't it like you pay me for my skills and qualification rather than my background?
