Is it rude to leverage an offer to get another company to expedite the interview process if you know you would most likely take the current offer over that one?

Nah. They don’t need to know your thought process. It’s just business.

No defiantly not, I would encourage you to do it. Most places will try and fit you in if they can and they like you as a candidate.

How so?

I did this a couple weeks ago. Did not work in expediting the process but only because it seemed like the employer wanted to interview other candidates first before choosing who to move along to final round. So it can go either way depending on what stage you're in and how they feel about you as a potential candidate. Definitely express your deep interest in them if you are.

If you feel confident that you did well so far in interviews I'd say go for it especially if you risk losing the other offer. It usually works in your favor. In my case, I kind of felt like my last interview went 50/50 and I wasn't too crazy about the opportunity. I was more interested in seeing what they would offer for leverage or comparison
