Okay, I think I am over thinking yesterday but I need someone elses objective opinion because I'm a little worried. Let me give you the back ground.
I attended an open house for a purchasing position at a boat company, a very good boat company and I was interviewed by two people. They really seemed to like me, they had me stay to take a personality test, offered me some water and were very nice and accommodating. It was probably the first time ever I felt like I wasn't at a job interview, I was that comfortable with the people there.
So I called back about a week ago and spoke with the woman in HR, VERY nice woman. She kept telling me over the phone over and over again that I was a GREAT candidate for the position. She repeated that many many times. She called me back last Friday and asked me to come to interview with the VP of Finance, ok no problem.
So yesterday I meet with the VP and it was the weirdest interview I have ever had. He kept contradicting himself, stating that he might have me come back this week to interview with another manager but in the very next breath he stated he wanted to get the thing wrapped up today.
The majority of the interview was spent talking everything BUT me or the position or the company for that matter.
He did have a lot of positive things to say like my personality test showed "Throughness" through the roof and that I did a great job on the test. He also said that the other ladies I interviewed with told him they liked me very much and they had a lot of nice things to say. He also stated that reading over my resume there were a lot of similarities between what I am doing now and what I would be doing there.
He apologized for being so busy because its new model roll out and things are a little hectic and then he asked me what I do where I am now and I told him, nothing was totally off in the response I gave him and then he said ok and walked me out. He handed me his card, we talked about the kids on his business card if they were his, he said I could call him directly if I had any questions and Cynthia, the HR lady would be calling me.
So there it is, I REALLY want this job, I really NEED this job, it pays 10K more a year than I am making right now and I KNOW I would do well there but this guy was so off the wall that I what he thought. Now I am usually a VERY good judge of a person and this guy was just everywhere.
So my theory its one of three things:
A. It was just a formality, he trusts what the people under him have to say and they will probably hire me.
B. He has already made the decision and he decided he doesn't like me and he was just passing the time because he HAD to interview me. (The whole entire interview lasted MAYBE 10-15 minutes.)
C. He is so busy with the new model roll out that he just had to many other things on his mind that he was just going through it to get me out of there.
So I apologize for the book, but what do you think and are there any corporate people out there that can give me their thoughts. I know I would be good at this job, it sounds very exciting and I am willing to dive in and learn everything. I just hope I didn't screw it up.
