I showed up a day early to my Deloitte interview haha. Read the date wrong. Luckily the interviewer was free so he just interviewed me anyways. Got the job

Haha one time I totally misread the time in my calendar (time zone sync disaster - this was a few years ago) and showed up an hour and fifteen minutes early. Still got the job!!

I show up the day before and see how dress, act and go for lunch. Then follow home my interviewer....

If you're not early, you're late
