OK, I have to share this. There is a new style of interviewing people for jobs. You fly, say, 15 people in. You meet them all at the airport, interview them there for 2 hours, select the 3 you like and drive them to your facilities for a visit and the rest of the interview.
The unlucky 12 are put on the plane back right there at the airport.
If you want to ask why Skype isn’t used instead, I’m as puzzled as you are.
This is actually being done at my university right now. If anybody has any explanations, please share.
