Find reasons to say no. That's how I conduct interviews. Hiring poorly and trying to get rid of them is always worse than hiring slowly and getting the right candidate.I found out the gossip on why one of my counterparts in another region was fired: he was sleeping with several of his subordinates.
In-person interviews for my open position tomorrow, though I’m not super excited about any of the candidates. I may waste a morning and then re-post the position.
