I just turned down an interview for a job today. This would have been the third interview for a position that probably paid less than $60k/yr. I did the phone interview and did well. They brought me in for a face to face interview with the two managers I'd be reporting to. I had to take time off from my job to make this happen. Now they called me today and wanted to set up another interview. Really?!?! How many frickin' interviews do you need to figure out who to hire for this job where you're surely going to low ball me on salary anyway? Why can't you just set up back to back interviews on the same day? No, you'd rather waste people's valuable time, who would have to take time off of work to meet your stringent hiring practices. To the employers that run this inefficiently, get it together.
Anyway, I withdrew my name because I have moved across country. I would have considered taking the job if they were ready to offer it to me now. However, I'm not interested in accepting a job with a company that is going to have little to no regard for my time.
Or does it play no part?
