I started in March and I don't find the role a good fit. I am getting invited to an interview. Should I call in sick that day, or have an interview at lunch time if nearby? I'm still in the probation period, don't know how good it is to take sick days already lol.

Make up a mild but believable medical issue and say it's a doctor's appointment, then take no longer than you have to, in place of your lunch, to attend the interview. Can be repeated a few times over a few weeks if needed until either your imaginary condition or your job has been cured.

ETA: Ha, I wrote the above without even looking at your user name...

The only solution is lunch time interviews for companies nearby. Just say you're taking a long lunch to renew your Driver's' license/Passport or handle some sort of paperwork related to government (marriage license copy/birth certificate copy etc. related to a mortgage application or something of that nature) and make up the hours later in the day.

Doctor's/Dentist appointments are also a possibility of course.
