Sat and talked benefits with the HR lady for a while after the tour. All their benefits start day one. They have three different medical plans to choose from. Dental, vision, pre-tax accounts, 401(k), the whole package. The 401(k) match could be better (100% on the first 3%, 50% on the next 2%, IIRC), but it doesn't suck. Ericka likes that, as part of the group discounts on various things, they offer discounts on pet insurance. I agree that says a lot about their values as a company.
I was one of five interviews the hiring manager is doing. We got along well and seem to be both quite laid back. She asked how I liked to be managed and then later told me that the way she manages is right along those lines; gives initial direction and then trusts people to get the job done, encourages questions when someone runs into roadblocks but isn't directing every step of the action. If all goes well, I'd be called back for a second interview with her boss, I guess.
As I napped this afternoon, I had a dream about the interview. In my dream, I was being interviewed by my current lead. There was a brief X-Men-ish subplot that I don't recall clearly but even after that, they were seriously impressed with me and wanted to know if I could start on Christmas day.
And, of course, I looked fabulous.
