Does anyone here work west coast hours in the east coast? I’m in final interview rounds for a role that I’m super excited about. They’re based in California and want me to work PST hours, but I’m on the east coast. I was initially fine with it because the recruiter said I’d typically be able to sign off by 6pm my time, but the hiring mgr mentioned feeling bad if it was close to 8pm my time and I was still working. I’m curious if anyone else works this schedule and if they do/don’t like it? Recs?

I am being considered for a position at FAANG, and have spoke to the hiring manager couple of times already where she talked about the immediate expectations coming into the role and list of activities one might need to do. I also know there other folks interviewing. In order to make sure I am putting my best foot forward, I’d like to send a draft project plan of the list of activities I’d take coming into this role and how I’d like to prioritize them to let the team know I planning ahead CONTD.

Honestly curious, if you’re a hiring manager with 1 position to fill would rather hire someone who has a:

A) Good interview and is very (physically) attractive
B) Great interview but is average looking

- Great interview meaning they answered all the questions perfectly and bring highly relevant experience
- Good interview meaning it went well and you know they can do the job well but nothing super impressive
- Both candidates also have equally positive personalities
