NO RATINGS

As aspiring companies, there really isn't a way for them to control who interviews and who does not. What they can anticipate at the very initial phase is to sell their company in a highly amicable manner to attract the correct talent pool. Every company would obviously want the best amongst the best in the industry, but sometimes even newbies can be nurtured accordingly. It is better to train an incumbent to work according to that particular company's requirements as opposed to hiring an experienced incumbent who has a new style of working and might not be open to changes.

Howdy,

Big thank you to Brian for his informative review. His superiors must be praised for the methodical way of absorbing "new kids on the block"

Towards the end of the interview he has most probably meant: "new hire"

Best Regards,

Dan.
