Sounds to me like the Director of Quality wants an hour or so as a change of pace...or has some other "I'm in charge here" agenda.

I wouldn't worry too much about it...just don't show up in cutoffs carrying a beer.
Good luck, and congratulations in advance!

I agree it is unusual for a Quality Tech position. And IMO I think it irresponsible for them to not have these folks interview you all in the same day. Did the HR and QM interview take place on the same day, or is this the 3rd time they are making you come in for an interview?

Too many companies don't value the interviewee's time and they create these painful, multi-visit interview routines, and in some fields they mix into that assigning you several projects to complete and send in for evaluation. And many of the places that do all this aren't necessarily top-performers in their fields, either.

I have become a strong proponent for panel interviews. I have been in many from both sides of the table, and they are much better than the 1 at a time interviews.

I had an interviewee for a potential roommate show up like that.

It would have been okay if he'd brought a six pack, but he only brought an unopened can for himself, and opened it when he sat down.

The director is probably looking at fit into the company culture. Yes you can do the job but will you cause disruption? Seems like you are in the clear barring disaster. When asked a question always have a "solutions" answer.
