I’d run! These all seem like major red flags. I feel like the hiring process shows good insight into what a company is like. If they can’t get it together enough to get you in and respect your time/value then I can only imagine how the environment is once you’re there.

Time to get to stepping. These people are flaky and indecisive. Run.

Jesus Christ. They’re just looking to make a talent roster at that point. Total BS. Holding Co or Independent shop?

a hot mess, but the thing is... i would probably still take the job if i get it because it’s a $50k pay bump 😭😭

Were you paid for the assignment?

no

Congratulations! Are you going to take it?

STOP IT! That is wild! Congrats, and let us know what you’ll do.

Adventures in Interviewing: Today we were wrapping up a pretty good interview with a strong potential candidate. When asked if they had any last questions, they said that they had an issue with our Work from Home policy (we’re 100% WFH right now, and will not consider a re-opening strategy until everyone is vaccinated). The candidate declared that they did not believe in vaccines, so we needed to allow her to be a permanent remote hire. I guess I’m glad about the dodged bullet, so there’s that.

I’ve been on H1B October 2019, expiring in 2022. I’m kind of clueless as to what happens next. Does my firm start the green card process soon because it’s been almost 2 years (ive heard/read you need to work 2 years before they do that at big 4). What does that entail and how long until the green card comes out after that? And when they renew my H1B for another 3 years is that a guarantee extension and not a lottery like the first one?
