Hi all - I am on my third interview with the same company. The first was with the manager I would be working with and HR. The second - was narrowed down to 3 people and I was one of them. I meet with the Engineering/Production Head and the Owner/Operator of the company. Both interviews went very well. I just got a call and usually the HR lady just emails me, but this time she called and told me that the Owner/Operator wanted to meet with me briefly to clarify a few things. oh and that I could come in anytime at my convenience. I thought that last line was strange. I would say I spent 40 minutes talking with the Owner/operator of the company. I'm just wondering what else I should be prepared for. Yes, we have covered all the basics and I have asked tons of questions - right down to a mission statement and their favorite books.
I'm a little nervous because this is the first length interview process I have been on. The Owner/Operator did asks me one question that I thought was odd - or maybe not - he asked how the job search was going? Like was there work out there. I think answered fair honest in my line of work. We are in manufacturing and i am looking for Procurement / Supply Chain / Project Management / Logistics - I told him that yes there are other opportunities available for me to pursue from Executive Assistants - to Program Coordinators however the reason i chose this company was because of my experience and the location of the company. I also told him that I have interviewed at different companies such as FSA and Microsoft.

So long story... I need advice, what other questions can I ask? The company isn't much on the internet and I think I have asked as much as I can about this company. I'm truely stumped. Any advice would help.

Thank you

My guess is the time for questions is over. The owner wants to talk with you to make sure that he is comfortable with you as a person.

It will most likely be closer to a social meeting than a business interview.

Sounds promising. Let us know how it turns out.

The 3rd interview is usually a "personality interview". Hit it off with the interviewer and you'll be hired. Good luck.

Perhaps he wants to make you an offer in person? Unusual, but not impossible.

And this. If you haven't discussed salary at this point. here's where it happens. Don't accept the first offer, but have a number you'll take even if they say it first? Clear?

Owner-operators are outside the disgruntled box that gets bandied about on the interwebs. Go with your gut, but it sounds like you go the job for sure - congrats!
