Today, I was scheduled for an interview at a local firm owned by two partners. The secretary told me to be there at around 12:00 to 12:30 pm, so I arrived at 12:15. The first boss told me off for being early, the other one yelled at me for being late. FML

I had a manager that threatened to fire anyone even a minute early, then scheduled me for an opening shift and yelled at me for being on time because I should have been there 30 minutes early


Btw, the people that thumbed me down have obviously never had contact with the working world. Sometimes there are no other job options, and you need to work with what you get.

You can be too early as well. As someone who Interviews and hires people anyone being more than 15-20 minutes early is just as bad as being late. Following instructions and arriving when asked is essential for most jobs, if you get to your interview more than 15 minutes early wait somewhere nearby. Also if you're an hourly employee arriving early for scheduled shifts is not only a nuisance but against most company policies.

40 is right. They give you an interview time because they have other things going on that they have to take care of before you come in. If you're more than 10 to 15 minutes early, you're making them drop what they're doing to do your interview, or you're interrupting another interview. Either way, it's annoying.

Why would they even give you two times or tell you to be there "around" a certain time? Most places just say "Be here at this time." That's what makes sense... Maybe it was a test?
