Just had an interview and was never asked “tell me about your proudest professional achievement/greatest success” even though every interview report said that was a question asked. Worried that this might put me at a disadvantage. Am I overthinking this?

Over thinking. Typically interviewers are given a set of potential questions that try to understand a similar underlying trait (eg, a school might want to test candidates’ integrity, so they could give interviewers a list of differently worded questions, all of which aim to get at an example of your integrity)

Currently interviewing for a designer role at Tesla - wanted some advice. The hiring manager has seemed uninterested and always dropped off interviews early and without answering any of my questions. He also mentioned that he's lost 4 designers from the team recently (red flag!). I think it'd be a cool role, but it sounds like I'd be the only designer and there's not a ton of support, BUT if I do well - lots of room for growth and promotion. Plus internal transfers after a year also an option?
