    One question to be sure to ask: do you rank employee performance on a bell curve? What are the ramifications involved with that? The company I just left adapted this GE style abomination. Yahoo, Amazon, Intel and a host of others do it. Just be aware of this situation, if it applies, and know what you are getting yourself into. Best of luck. I’m retired and occasionally work as a contractor. No ‘stacked ranking’ for me. I’d be outta there in a minute if they tried to pull that.

    What does it say about a company when you show up for an interview, and your interviewer discovers that all the available interview rooms are taken? We ended up doing the interview in their “cafeteria” and my main interviewer left multiple times to finish my interview with his coworker. I asked him if it was a busy day, to which he said it was, but could that be a possible red flag?

    Great tips Cat. I especially like advice number one “Note the Reception Experience” The Receptionist is someone’s first introduction into the company and could provide a wealth of information for the job seeker.
