    Went on an interview in March, they didn't want me because my salary requirements were higher than they wanted to pay.

    Last week, I get a phone call, they want a 2nd interview as the new hires haven't worked out :rolleyes:

    I go in tomorrow at 5 PM.

    Covert operation in progress.

    Send some smoke my way, if ya can ;)

    Just do it like you did it last time. Looks like it worked. As an old joke goes "We already have established that. Now we are just talking about price.".

    Seriously, that's good news - they obviously like you if they chose you by name in the second draft (despite the "high" salary requirements).

    I stuck to my guns. The "guy" apologized for calling me in once he realized it was "me".

    I have the philosophy that if it doesn't work out it's all for the best. If they can't see your value or they aren't willing to pay for it, then you don't want to work for them. If you are a hard worker, smart, and show up regularly any company would be lucky to have you. I know how frustrating job hunting can be, I do wish you the best.

    I got the impression it was a "fishing for your salary requirements" thingy.

    Why would you waste my time & yours if you already knew what I need, and what you want to pay, and you don't want to do it????????

    *throws hands up in the air and gets a glass of wine*

    PS - Jags, I'd pass a drug test these days :confused:
