  1. I plan my phone interviews on Fridays these days for the simple reason I can observe the recruiter at the point in their week when they either have made their weekly call quota and are in a good mood or are in a mood to exit the office and they drop their guard.
    For the same reasons I never allow a hiring manager to do an interview on an afternoon on Thursday or Friday – there is no buy-in or the interview is a great way to duck away for a while.

    Another way ‘out’ of an interview that has gone completely south (job responsibility doesn’t match the job description, conversation veers into highly uncomfortable territory, non-competes or NDAs are brought up as a prerequisite to continue ‘the process’) is to hang up on yourself while _you_ are talking.
