    I have wondered what an interview for a FB HC position looks like. I have been interviewed and conducted a few for more mainstream jobs, but I am not sure if the process is similar or if there is a big difference. I doubt JP was asking PR if he were a tree what kind of tree would he be, but I am curious what kinds of questions are asked and how the interview is structured.

    Anyone have any insight?

    I'd imagine he'd be an Oak.

    I'm guessing it went something like this.

    Jamie Pollard's phone rings, on the other end is Paul Rhoads

    PR: Uh, Is this Jamie?

    JP: Yes it is. Who is calling?

    PR: Uh, this is Paul Rhoads

    JP: Who?

    PR: Paul Rhoads. I work at Auburn

    JP: Oh. What can I do for you Paul

    PR: Um, if you don't have anyone yet to coach your team.....I'll do it.

    JP: Are you from Iowa

    PR: Yes

    JP: You got it. See you tomorrow at 5.

    Really? I kind of envisioned him as a larch.

    JP should have spotted trouble two years ago when GC answered "weeping willow".

    Seriously- I'm sure they don't really asked the "tree question" in those interviews...

    More likely "why are manhole covers round?"

    The covers are round because the holes are round.

    Or do you prefer "manhole" or "gentleman aperture" and why?
