That moment when you’re interviewing and bump into your boss waiting to be interviewed as well.

I was just recently hiring for a position and I interviewed a specialist, and the next day the specialists manager. Oddly enough, the specialist was way more intelligent and capable than the manager. We hired somebody else, but still a funny story

@SVP 1 I don’t know OP, but this happened to me a couple years ago. I made a bad choice and joined an awful agency. My boss had already been at said agency for 2 years and was over the BS but didn’t leave right away until he has something lined up since his wife just gave birth to their first daughter. Another agency recently won a big account and decided to do a job fair. I not only saw my boss there as I was leaving but also saw another employee there too as I arrived. We knew how much we each wanted to leave so we looked out for each other. It’s certainly rare which is why I can understand you questioning this, but also very possible.

Poor of the agency interviewing you both to allow that to happen. Should be a warning sign about how they operate.

A friend I worked with called me one morning for a pep talk before an interview. I pumped her up and told her I had an interview that day too. Turns out it was for the same job. Not only that, but when I was at the agency waiting to interview, a coworker walked out as I was walking in. Then, after my interview another coworker was waiting to interview next. All four of us were interviewing for the same position (they were filling more than one slot). None of us got it.

Moved to a new home that has speaker systems all over the house. It is Nuvo - but little outdated. Since I have the hardware, what do I need to allow airplay and connect with my phone? Also can an electric guy fix all of it for me? Or is there a special sound tech who does this

Love watching my boss flip out, insult, and yell over work. It's rather amusing. If that's all it takes to get fired up, can't imagine what real life does to them.
