One lot I flew for (albeit a corporate operation) took me for lunch at Langans Brasserie for the interview chat. They also plied me with plenty of wine of course to see if I let anything untoward slip. Subsequently it was the best job I ever had!

Ranting about airlines not rolling out the red carpet is just ridiculous. If you want the job then its reasonable to assume that you've done the homework and taken the view that the subsequent hoop jumping effort required to attain said job is a worth while endeavour.

I've never expected a company to pay for my airfares, hotels, meals etc and frankly never would do. If they do, great. But I've never begged for a job. Anything I've applied for has been a significant move in the right direction so if it cost me a tank of fuel and a night in a premier inn to make that step then so be it.

Are we REALLY this precious? Come on.

I think how a company treats it's prospective employees is pretty much a guide to what to expect if the employee is successful. You take what they give and you give back the same.
