Talked to this company and they said if I’m willing to pay to fly out they will interview me. Does that strike you as cheap?

If they are cheap when they are trying to seem more attractive, they are probably cheap once you're working there

Ummm say no. That happened to me when I was interviewing at Accenture. And they ended up offering me a Skype interview and I got the job.

If they are a tech firm and low on funding and they require you to move for the job (e.g. Relo) and they are interviewing only local candidates, it makes sense they are asking you to fund your own flight. However, if you are supposed to be working from the city you are currently in, and they want you to pay to fly to HQ, that's cheap and BS. Worth having a direct conversation with them about why they think you should pay.

Sounds like a bad joke. Drop the conversation right away.

I don’t disagree with most of what has been posted itt, but if you pay your own way to the interview I suspect it will go a long way towards ultimately getting the job, if that’s what you want

I say in this day and age if you need to “see a candidate” they you pay for you to fly out or use video conferencing (WTF) .....last interview I had offered to pay & I still declined (they have a local office) why the hell should I fly to NYC for half a day....they agreed to the video conference

What company was that?

Bad sign of things to come

EY2 - this is probably true, since no one else will do it :p

What do I say if a recruiter is refusing to tell me the salary budget for the role I'm interviewing for? They keep asking me for a number, but I keep asking what they value the role at and what their budget is, which they aren't willing to disclose until I give a number. 🤷🏻 What do I do??

I could use some guidance on how to transition out of firm life into a government role. Prior to law: four years working for a state and a city, and four years before that worked at a consulting agency strictly serving government agencies and cities/counties.

I love admin law, have some litigation and some transaction work as a lawyer. Thanks!

Need offer status ASAP because I can pursue other opportunities through connections but I don’t want to use my goodwill unless forced. BUT I need to pursue those options ASAP too. Advice?
