Long Interview Process? Assume You Didn't Get the Job | JTandDale.comDear J.T. & Dale: I’ve recently spent four months in the interview process with one company. I went on five separate interviews, each time meeting three to five people. I was told they’d make a decision soon. Today, I called and they said I was their lead candidate but they decided to look at a few more. I was furious! Should I assume they’re “just not that into me” and walk away? — Kerry Read the rest of this entry »

061911-i-cant-tell-how-the-interview-wentDear J.T. & Dale: Yesterday I had a phone interview. The interviewer asked me two questions: (1) What was a difficult situation you’ve experienced, and how did you handle it? (2) What computer programs do you have experience with? That was it. The rest of the time, she spoke about the company and position. I spent two days preparing for this interview, and she hardly asked me any questions. In fact, she kept asking me if I had any questions. It’s driving me crazy, because I can’t tell how it went. — Nadidra Read the rest of this entry »

Where's My Piece of the Pie? | JTandDale.comDear J.T. & Dale: I’m currently working for a restaurant group that is franchising one of our concepts. As general manager at one of the current locations, I’ve been running things (without the owners), plus I’ve been doing a lot of “extra” work dealing with consultants, marketing folks and architects. My pay is not increasing, and my question is, when and how do I say, “Where’s my piece of the pie?” Anytime it sort of comes up, I get the “We have to wait till the money starts coming in.” — Reggie Read the rest of this entry »
