Being courted by a recruiter for a senior product designer role. I made it very clear that remote work was non-negotiable in the initial phone screening.

They want to proceed with a video interview but it’s “recommended to join the team in office occasionally and work on-site in the beginning and go from there.”

I politely withdrew and they said the VP reconsidered because it’s been difficult to get people in the office - so I would be fully remote.

Proceed or 🚩run away?
