How do you get home from Bloomington, IL on a Thursday. There’s like no flights except really early and I’m not sure if driving to ORD makes sense

Such a vague question. Where is home? Chicago? LA? 30 miles east of Bloomington, IL?

Right. I will have to connect to some hub depending on airline (or obviously direct through ORD) but just wondering if anyone else has experience since I don’t think having to fly into the middle of nowhere is “new” for consultants

If flights out of Bloomington IL (BMI), Peoria (PIA), Springfield IL (SPI) or Quad Cities-Moline (MLI) aren’t convenient then drive to St Louis or O’Hare.

Car service?

I use to drive to St. Louis. A lot better than driving to ORD

Yeah that’s crazy, flights are from 6a-10a... and that’s it.

When posted at SF, I drove to ORD or drove to STL, whichever had better flights home.

Another option is carpool if there are bunch of folks. But winter is approaching, so be careful

Black car

Drive to ORD or leave Friday AM

I used to fly out of Bloomington to PHL weekly- do they not have flights in the afternoon anymore? Lol

I seriously doubt some of the recruiters and hiring managers in the big4s now a days, their decisions w.r.t. designation and pay depends on their mood and willingness to work on a particular day.. They will interview for X designation and then will ghost you and then will come back with a lower level and pay saying would you be interested?🤣 Why would somebody be interested to join at a lesser pay, when he/she is currently well in his/her job and just found the opportunity more interesting...
