I’d rather skip lunch or eat a sandwich in a closet than show that disrespect to a candidate. Or pass the duty to a colleague

I find this unprofessional honestly. However, if the interviewer did set proper expectations, or even ask permission to the interviewee, even to the extent of giving his reasons for why doing so, and then the interviewee agreed, I believe it's all good. Did the interviewer at least offered or cared to share his/her food as courtesy or even decency?

If that’s how they treat you now it will only get worse once you’re in the machine.

Did they say anything about it? Did it come across as more unaware or more rude? In the office, I’m assuming? Main impression is they’re very busy, because most people would rather not do that.

Yeah that sounds weird and like they’d probably not be... amazing to work for.

That's weird and rude, but I'd maybe give them a pass if they acknowledged it and gave some kind of explanation (ie: i'm diabetic and have to eat right now, pregnant, etc).

Also he hasn’t gotten back to me this week yet. This makes me think I’m a backup or something. Any advice on how to proceed?

Mums of Australia, I am wondering how you balance the cost of childcare vs working? We have unfortunately realised that due to the $10k cap, we have to pay full fee ($160 per day) for at least 4 months a year ... It's so frustrating that the cost of daycare is exorbitant if one chooses to work. I heard that au pairs can be more cost effective or even a mums helper. Any suggestions on how and where to start looking? Thank you for any advice / words of wisdom / guidance you can share...
