But has anyone been successful in getting extra PTO that is now working at Microsoft?

I think most of the companies especially corporations are dead set on PTO

Hi all, getting a bit in my head. I was laid off a couple of weeks ago. Had my first interview at a Tech company… This was the worst interview I’ve had, dude was condescending, did not care about any of my experience if it wasn’t in tech and did not have any time to train the person who clearly needed to put off some fires ASAP. Red flag all around and of course, I did not continue the process. Every interview after that has only gone thru the recruiter to later (continue in comments)

Any helpful strategies?
