Like say the interview was over and they offer you the job right after, before you’ve left the room.. is this normal or do you think its sus? Never had this happen so wondering if its something to be suspicious about.

It does happen sometimes! I haven't had it happen to me personally but one of my best friends had the job offered to her at the end of her interview. It's not the most common occurence, but it does happen!

It can happen. I've actually experienced a similar situation in that I was touring a company and offered a job there and then. They were going to write a job spec and conduct an interview with me if I accepted the offer simply to fulfil their HR obligations - I still turned the job offer down though.

It can happen.

But check company reviews on sites like Glassdoor just in case there's something dodgy going on.

True. I had no retail experience and the Tesco manager gave the Job.

I mean for a job like that it's very likely they're only interviewing one person a day and only giving people interviews if the last person wasn't hired so it's common enough in this situation
