Have you ever taken a job and wondered what they hey????
The employer lied to me in the interview!
This company is so not congenial, autonomous, collaborative.
There is no work/life balance and the deadlines are horrific.
I’ll tell you what gives.
You didn’t ask very good questions.
Or, you didn’t ask your questions the right way.
It is my belief (prolly because I have faith in people) interviewers do not lie to you in the interview.
They respond to the questions you ask, based on the way you ask them, and offer insight into what they think you want to know.
Sounds reasonable to me.
BUT, as in a capital BUT, you need to ask your questions so you’re eliciting proof of their behavior.
You assess their behavior—and likely what you’re getting yourself into—based on actual evidence not theories or circumstantial information.
