Hi ladies, looking for advice:
My team is tiny and we're recruiting for someone below my level

Myself and the only other junior (above me) both didn't decide to push one candidate forward as she was just eh (and personally, she no-showed once and was late) plus there were definitely better candidates

However, my manager wanted to push her forward anyways (I believe for diversity/personal bias)

Given my manager has a lot of influence in general, I'm stressed she's going to get the role

Is it fair for me to oppose if it comes to it? She would be reporting directly under myself and I would work the most with her, even if I'm the most junior..

That's a good way of approaching it, thank you!

This candidate really just seems to want to move for higher pay/change, I wasn't able to get any reason as to why this role (and it's very taxing/stressful so this isn't going to cut it). The other junior also found her motivations not very strong/outstanding, more like she read off cliches online

She also lacks any prior experience (versus the other candidates with very similar prior roles/experiences)

Not sure if as a result, but she also didn't perform as well on the technical portion.

To put it in perspective, the other junior and I both put her in the "no" pile, not even a "maybe". So this is the gap we're working with in skills/experience

By push forward, do you mean extend an offer, or just move into another round? If the latter, I would encourage other interviewers to probe her on the technical skills portion.

Of course!! Good luck navigating. It’s a prickly situation for everyone. I learned in my career to “cover my ass” and document everything in written format but of course ensuring everything written is as neutral, objective, and unbiased as possible.

Trying to decide between two offers -

2) ACN at Level 5 Director, 55k more than current salary. Role is for an industry lead nationally, lot of opportunity to grow as well, sign up bonus of 60k in RSU, vests in 3 years.
Other things like vacation days etc. are similar.
