well, not enough info you gave us, but if she was interviewing for a job in a skyclub, i think its a pretty good place to have it. Not sure how those interviews work, but maybe it was the 2nd part of the screening in which they have to do a walk through of some sort.

Folks get interviewed in Clubs all the time and nothing to do with working there. It's just an obvious place to do it. It makes coordinating travel a lot easier. I've met many prospective clients in the the clubs over the years. Now THAT is an interview. LOL.

There actually is something referenced in the Terms & Conditions of a Sky Club membership specifically regarding interviewing in the club... read it a few days ago.

How many clubs still have conference rooms? Most of them were removed to make room for more seating I think.

I presume A17 in the OP is ATL. ATL Centerpoint has conference rooms for rent. The interview should have been held there.

I guess it depends on what kind of interview it is. If its a follow up / executive interview where you are having more of a conversation on your work / skills rather than an "interview", thats one thing. If its a "Tell me your strengths and weaknesses" or "what kind of salary are you looking for" kind of interview, I could see how that may be uncomfortable with people listening.

Well Mr Hudson, if I was being interviewed by you and it was in Crwon Room, I think I could handle it.

I had such an interview at ATL on the second level of the atrium where they have a number of such rooms - they even had lunch catered.
Much better than in the middle of the SkyClub.
Got the job

I assume that you accepted the job and it went well after such a nice interview setup?

Didn't Leonardo Dicaprio fly up to meet James Cameron at an airport lounge for Titanic?

It was two ladies, one interviewing and one being interviewed. They set up a few seats away from me and went to it. Unlike a lunch interview, this was in a quieter area of the club and there were a number of people around. I could not help but hear it as everyone else was quiet as they were talking like they were at lunch. I actually got up a left as I could not concentrate on my own work at hand. I just do not think it is in good tact to make someone spill their life out like that in that situation....

Honestly, how is it any different than two people sitting in a club and having a conversation between themselves? Or are we not allowed to talk to other people when in the SkyClub now?

Maybe stop being so uptight and mind your own business? Or have the stick removed?
So I can fully understand your point; you feel an interviewer asking an interviewee personal questions in an airport lounge in a quiet area where all around can not help but hear is the same as interviewing at a restaurant and that even though they came and sat down right next to me and started talking at a volume commonly used in an office meeting or restaurant, to the point where I had to move in order to hear myself think, is actually my problem for interloping on their conversation to the point that I actually rectally assaulted myself with a stick?
