Today I had an interview for a junior developer role.
When I entered the address location into Google maps I did not realize I made a mistake and accidentally inputted the building address as "680" instead of "608". It took me to a building that was 3 blocks away from the actual building.
About 3 minutes before the interview was supposed to start I called my interviewer and explained to him my situation, where I was, and I personally apologized for the confusion, he told me I was about 3 blocks away and I quickly got in my car drove down 3 blocks and got to the correct building.
To make matters worse, when I got to the correct building and the floor the office was on, I did not realize that their office was under a different name than the name they had on their website and in their correspondences with me. I called the receptionist and she told me that the office was under a different name and I found it.
When I met my interviewer in person I did at first explain that my confusion came from Google maps but I again apologized for my mistake.
All in all I was about 6 minutes late for the interview, which I personally think went fairly well. Will my interviewer hold this against me?
