Holy shit that job interview was not great

Dude asked me one question about my current job and then launched into a half-hour pitch. Leads are all self-generated, mostly by canvassing neighborhoods. He also gave me an example pitch which makes it sound like they’re not selling solar panels at all but offering some kind of free service upgrade that lowers your energy bill. It’s a little dodgy. Also they make you wear really douchebaggy uniforms.

If you accept the premise that interviews are bi-directional, it sounds like you got some value from it.


#26

update: it went gr8. they gave me data I hadn’t seen and it still worked lmao


#27

I hate interviewing candidates in the pipeline. Bunch of awkward conversations with serial mumblers, and that’s assuming they’re doing well and not awkwardly lost/confused by the question.
