If they forgot you once be leery. If they forgot you twice just walk away. Not worth a job change with those red flags.

Yep.

This experience is totally different from the interview with the same company I did in August. Hopefully I hear from them before the end of business hours today.

Strangly enough I would want to get injured 50 miles away than 5 miles away in a big city! That guy will be in ER before a ground ambulance would even get to the scene in a big city.

Fortunately it's in SF, so no big deal.

For some reason Amazon's interview process is stuck in Seattle for most engineering positions. But I won't complain, got a free 2.5 day trip out of it.

Except, at least in the US, you'll end up back in the hospital once you see the bill. My father-in-law had to have emergency heart surgery 2 years ago and had to be life-flighted from one hospital to another. The distance was 15 miles and the bill was over $20,000. He ended up not paying it because he fortunately had purchased "life flight" insurance as a rider on his insurance. It's not normally covered.
