I have been in the process of interviewing for my dream job for the last 2 months. It started with a 5 hour “interview” with the president of the company. Since then I have had meetings in person and on the phone with the 3 V.P.'s. Every indication is that I have this job. The president has called it my position during conversations. I am driving down to meet with him tomorrow for what I am expecting to be the “offer meeting”.
So I opened up my e-mail today and there was an e-mail from him. Nice, confirming our meeting time and place the usual. But then he told me to make sure I bring along a mileage report and any expenses so he can reimburse me.
This has me worried. My worry is if he is in fact hiring me why wouldn’t he just wait and reimburse me on my first check or however the company normally does it? Does he feel bad that I did a lot of driving to meet with all the guys and since I am not getting the job he should pony up some cash?
So Dopers, help me out here. This really is my dream job and I am hoping that I am just worried about nothing. But this just seems off to me.
