Yes. And it’s a good sign on all sides

Yes and you should want that too

If a company does this, it is the final stage- a chemistry check. I think it’s good to meet your future direct reports, but they shouldn’t be interviewing you, but more about chemistry. If they are meeting you, that should be the final stage. I once interviewed at a small agency and they had me meet with the most junior people on the staff - I found that to be highly unusual and it turned me off. But to meet with your directs is a good thing

not common but not unheard of either.

I think it’s important- I wouldn’t want to accept a job without meeting the team

Yes. This is common

Yes and a good move for all. Best if you are able to meet with them privately versus a “chaperoned” interview. That action itself speaks volumes.

I don’t know if it’s common but it signals an organization that cares about finding the right fit and also one that values the opinions of everyone

Yes

I did it

yes

Great sign

^ Totally agreed on the chaperoned part. That's a red flag and negates the whole thing.
