I went to a second interview for a job the other day, which was with the unit manager. My first interview had been with the HR lady who was very professional.
This interview was for a LTC position in a memory unit, part time, nights.
I did get the job, but this manager woman who will now be my boss was completely unprofessional in the interview. This facility is really nice, but she had me sit there while she powered on her computer(that had shut down on its own while she was printing something) so that she would be able to look at my application the HR lady had forwarded to her. She answered four e-mails on her computer while I sat there and she also texted on her phone. Two different people from out in the hall interrupted the interview by bringing something in to her office(batteries and a lamp). And any time someone passed by the door, she flagged them down and told them something about how she wanted them to end this meeting at the end of their shift. On our tour of the unit, she also grabbed a cleaning bottle and rag off of the custodians cart so she could go clean "fingerprints" off of her office door that were driving her mad. She said if she didn't get them at that moment that it was going to drive her crazy. She had me stand in the other hallway while she went to do that, halfway through the tour. She did not seem focused on me at all, which really turned me off. She was very concerned that I had had only one year of experience under my belt, and when she asked me how long I had had my license and how long I been working she kept getting the numbers confused and had to keep asking me to repeat myself due to the fact that she wasn't listening to me answer the questions that SHE asked me in the first place.
I walked out of there sure that I didn't get the job, which was ok with me because if she didn't like my one year of experience then I could understand that, things happen. I would just keep looking. But the job was offered to me.
I hope this is not normal, and is not a reflection of how she will be as a boss. Is this normal?? Anyone have any advice?? Thankfully I will be working nights and may not have to deal with her that often..
