We have an opening for an investigator in my office- I’ve been interviewing for several days. I met with my last applicant today. We set up the interview by e-mail for 10 this morning. She called me at 10:15 and said she was lost. She wasn’t lost, she just wasn’t there yet and wasn’t sure how much farther she had to drive. She got to my office at about 10:30.
Otherwise, she was as qualified as everyone else I’ve talked to, but not more so- I liked her fine, but I really have a problem with someone who is a half-hour late for a job interview without something unexpected like a car wreck or something. It sounds like she just didn’t allow enough time to get there. I’ve pretty much decided not to consider her. Am I being unreasonable?
