Say you had an interview scheduled with a company, and during your pre-interview research you discovered dozens of reviews on, say, glassdoor.com in which nearly every employee complains about the same problems:
- Little/no work/life balance
- Unrealistic expectations/deadlines
- Incompetent management and internal politics
What's the most graceful way to cancel the scheduled interview? Perhaps with something along the lines of "another company has made an offer that couldn't be refused, so please cancel the interview as I don't want to waste your interviewer's time"? Or is there a better way?
