So I'm in s crappy job (underpaid, undervalued blah, blah) and I've been looking for something new.
I had an interview earlier this week with a place that seemed ok...until I went in and actually met the person I would be working under. She couldn't describe the role and kept saying things along the lines of "I wish I could give you this but you seem overqualified and we don't even know really what this job is". It was over in 15 minutes which also seemed a bit odd. I felt I had presented myself well, but felt a bit weary of the interviewer.
Yesterday, when I left work I saw that she had left a voicemail and sent an email. She wants to speak with me further, but in both cases she seemed to have forgotten she'd interviewed me days earlier (firmly saying last week in the email and then waffling on the date in the voicemail). She said she needed me to call her right away, but did not say why.
All of these little red flags are adding up to my gut telling me that to proceed with these guys might be moving me from the frying pan and into the fire. The work itself isn't the draw in this case (the perks being closer to home and more pay), so I don't know if I should swallow my feelings and email back saying "sorry, I received your message last on Friday and will give you a call on Monday", or avoid the place altogether?
