I'll start. One time I had an interview for a job at a nonprofit that supported foreign exchange students at high schools in the U.S.
I walked into the reception area. Three employees stared me down with looks that simultaneously communicated, "Get out while you can," and, "We'll eat you for breakfast."
During the interview, I was informed all employees were paid $10/hr for the first month. Then during the second month, the actual salary would kick in. I had one interview in the morning and by 2 p.m. they were on the phone offering me the job.
Eek! Talk about a red flag of being offered a job without a second interview.
Needless to say, I declined and felt relieved to have dodged a terrifying career misstep.
