Like I stated before, the interviewers do not even know what you are applying for unless they look or ask.

There is something going on here that is weird...they are doing something with peoples information, that is why they are the only company to put such high salaries on their job postings? DO NOT get your hopes up when they call you quickly after you apply, just being real about it so you do not think you are in for a $150,000/year job...I hope someone exposes what they are really doing besides wasting a lot of peoples time and energy.

1 Answers

I gave a broad answer because it was really a broad question to be honest. After the humiliation of knowing I was already interviewing for a job that I wasn't qualified for, I was then given "constructive criticism" by the interviewer for giving a broad answer. I'm not new to interviewing, I know how to answer with specific situations. That being said, when you ask a very non-specific question you should expect a non-specific answer. Less
