Curious if others think it is unprofessional to take a potential job candidate to lunch (with other current employees) after an interview with management. Then after lunch bring them back to do a second less formal interview with said current employees who would essentially be co-workers if this candidate was hired.
Is it common for oncall duties to not be mentioned in the hiring stages and then popped on engineers a few weeks into their jobs? Is it up to the interviewee to ask whether oncall is required and compensated extra? I’m a new grad and noticed that some companies seem like they’re trying to hide the fact that oncall is part of the job I’m interviewing for, by not mentioning it at any point in the hiring stages, even when asked what the scope of job duties are.

Hi everyone, what is the average payout for a Senior analyst - Business consulting (GCB 6) position at HSBC, Bangalore. I have cleared the interview rounds, I am waiting for the salary break up from them.
Anyone working in France, if you're interviewing for a job for any position below "executive" and they give you a contract that categorizes you as an executive/cadre in their CCN, it's an obvious attempt to circumvent labor laws and it means they'll make you work overtime and won't have to pay you for it. Run the other way, and report it to DRIEETS
I need some advice. I have had two interviews with a company for a financial analyst role. It’s a private company with one owner. SaaS. The owner mentioned they’d been the subject of theft in both interviews, which I thought was very weird. At this point, I’m assuming they’ve gotten whatever internal control issues fixed, but I haven’t outright asked the question. The accounting team is 3 people including an outsourced CFO.

Something that bothered me, but I never really felt like I should ask -- why are salaries not rounded off? Or maybe they are for other people? In my entire career, my base salary had no zeroes at the end (i.e., instead of something like $12,000.00, it was something like $12,345.67). I'm not sure why -- does anyone have an explanation for this? Doesn't seem to make sense.
