I had to interview someone today for an open position we have in our group. Given the events of the past week (see my previous posts on salary harmonization) I had a hard time even trying to get someone to come to work here. The candidate did at least seem more capable than the last four people we brought in. I was also very tempted to give the HR person a piece of my mind when she brought the interviewee over, but I decided it was best to hold my tongue at this point. Her time will come.
