I would not make a decision on whether to interview based on that, but if the interview confirms it, I would much rather hire someone that really wants to work for us.
I find that to be a strange factor to consider. I look for employment based on the job being offered. I research the company after I receive a request for an interview. I often wonder if employers are seeking employees who can successfully perform the job.

I am in the financial services industry. The banks often hire people through contract-to-hire, instead of direct hire. The FTE offers are really awesome, when you take into account bonus and benefits. You have to make a high salary request, when they offer you the job. I went high and let them knock me down.

At a different bank, I was offered base salary nearly the same as my hourly rate. The bonus added another 10-15%. On the tech side supporting retail banking, non-mgmt VP roles are typically $110k-139k+ base for data, cyber-security, or IT work in low cost of living areas.

If you are on the investment banking side, those numbers may be around $125k-159k. In NYC, the numbers may be another $20k higher.

The hourly rates may be the same at a bank vs other companies, because it's the agencies that control your pay.

But this approach wouldn't work unless the company is quite well known. For people to search for job openings for a specific company on their website I think the company has to be a big brand or at least well known in the particular industry or niche.

If I see the LinkedIn job ad, I usually click on the company name to go to their company profile. Their company profile will have a link to their company website. I navigate to their career section and apply there. I hope that helps.

I think a good analogy would be applying to a university via the Common App vs. applying through the school's website. Neither would likely be seen in a negative light, but there might be slightly different impressions on you're shopping around for a job/college vs. looking to work/attend at a particular place.
