”I was interviewing for a local internship (multinational corp, they were interviewing from all over the state). They neglected to tell me it was a phone interview so I googled their address, threw on a suit and tie, and showed up at the scheduled time.
Made for a tremendously awkward interview, but also a funny story when I got the job.”
”I was looking to relocate to a new area. I managed to finally score an on-site interview with a major defense contractor that does some really cool stuff. I showed up to the location the HR rep specified 15 minutes early. When my interview time rolled around, security told me I was in the wrong location. It turns out they had another location on the other side of town about 15 minutes away.
I tried to get there as fast as I could, but the local PD did not like that idea. I showed up to the interview 30 minutes late with a $250 speeding ticket. There were a few things that weren’t working in my favor that day, I think they finally canceled that position a few months later.
Moral of the story: if the company has multiple locations, verify the interview location.”
