Is it bad if I schedule an interview and then not show up cuz I got an offer from another firm. Obviously I won’t just ghost them.

You may want to tell them in advance that you’re no longer interested and that you received an offer from another firm. You should also thank them for considering you if you want to stay on good terms with them.

Just cancel it and explain really nicely that you’ve accepted another offer. Better to be upfront as soon as possible instead of leading them on

Please don’t do that. Have the professional courtesy to let them know. It’s a small world and you may never know what the future may hold and you wouldn’t want this to come back to haunt you.

I think you should go. I once made the decision to relocate to one state with a company only to decline because the offer from a different company in a different state was much better. I had nothing to lose in the second interview which is probably why I came across genuine.

^ ditto. People don’t like it when companies don’t usually call interviewees back, so don’t do the same as people won’t appreciate.
