I have interviewed three times with a potential employer. One introduction, a technical interview and final cultural fit interview. All seemed to go very well.
However, during the 2 1/2 hour company fit interview, towards the end, I was asked a couple of times if I had any offers and was asked to let them know before accepting any other offers. A couple of days later I got a follow up call as promised but they said the hiring decision has been postponed for a couple of days. I was told they had two more interview to complete.
So my question is, what is the point of asking if I have other offers? I have never had a company remind me several times to basically let them know about my other offers before I accept them.
My feeling is that I am a top pick but they continuing the rest of the interviews for completion and to validate their decision.
What are the reasons for asking about other offers?
