@EvanDeSimone Too true. One time an interviewer even told me, "Oh don't worry, we'll get back to you whether you get the job or not. We're not like those OTHER companies!" I followed up with two emails after the interview and never heard a word from them.
@Allison Aaah thanks!
@j a y Thanks for the tips! What's AP coffee? I googled and got a cafe in Brooklyn. I usually get dark roast beans so I'm good on that. This still seems too fussy for weekday mornings for me but maybe I'll get it and use it for the weekends.
@garli Does it really use a lot more coffee beans than a standard drip machine to yield one "good" strong cup of coffee? I'm reading Amazon reviews and a few ppl have mentioned that...
@meatballsub I know b/c I wanted one.

@andnowlights Are we the same person? My resume is scattered and I've done contract/temp work for the last 3 years which HR people love to point out to me at interviews. Now I'm second guessing turning down a FT job offer b/c it would've meant stability (in a field I don't want to be in, with a manager that people "warned" me about during the in-person interviews (I KNOW)).
You look good at 99 b/c Asian don't raisin!

@andnowlights Yeah I feel like I shouldn't make these calls at my desk. My coworker, on the other hand, doesn't feel shy about this at all and spent 1.5 hours on the phone with Verizon yesterday!
@sea ermine Hm, are the interviews near your current job? I've gone on interviews that were sort of nearby before and I did them during my lunch hour. I just made sure to emphasize to the interviewer that I had to leave at X time and most people respected that. I then told my colleagues and manager that I had an "errand" to run but I should be back in an hour or so. It gets tricky when the interview is far away or your current dress code is jeans/hoodie/something that smells OK and you gotta don a suit for the interview (in that scenario I had someone hold my suit for me at their place of work). OMG I've gone on so many interviews.
