What do you think goes on in a GM interview?

Jim in Forest Hills : 1/14/2022 7:53 am
Do you think Mara uses a template (I use one)?

I wish I could be in the room where it happens.

Is it a half day? Do GMs come in with mock plans?

Is there a meal included for a social piece?

Has anyone been in a C Level interview process before?

Maybe something like:  
Jim in Forest Hills : 1/14/2022 7:57 am : link
1. Meet and Greet - tell us about yourself
2. Past History - Decision making process
3. Future plans with Giants
4. Some sort of exercise/planning session/presentation
5. Wrap up
6. Meal?

Get fitted for their shackles. John and steve take turns whipping them to see their reaction, and lastly they have to demonstrate they can properly clean the drool from chris’s mouth.
Something like this  
TroyArchersGhost : 1/14/2022 8:14 am : link
1. Exchange pleasantries
2. GM is told he'll have no real power
3. Exchange pleasantries
4. End of interview

Should include telling the candidate about the organization, values, mission, vision probably in 1) above. Also clear expectations on what you as an organization are looking for. It's important that the candidate is the right fit for the Giants AND the Giants are the right fit for the candidate.
Don't get fooled by a good interview. They may be great, but it doesn't mean they are the right candidate. Timing is important. Sometimes you have to say no right now, but leave the door open for the future.
It goes something like this  
M.S. : 1/14/2022 8:18 am : link

John Mara: Please feel free to ask any questions you may have.

Candidate: Are you still paying Joe Judge money... $5 Mill a year for 5 Years?
These are on zoom so cross off the meal  
Chris684 : 1/14/2022 8:32 am : link
but good question.

I'd love to be a fly on the wall.

No more meals. It's mostly Zoom now
They probably talk a little about the structure of the organization  
Mike from Ohio : 1/14/2022 8:57 am : link
and their values, and then have the candidate talk about his accomplishments and what he thinks it takes to build a winning organization. Then they dive straight into the questions from Google.

"If you could be any kind of tree, what kind of tree would you be and why?"

"Ready? Marry/Fuck/Kill - Bea Arthur, Mare Winningham and Susan Sarandon."

"How many computer guys do you think you'll need?"
As a side note...  
Jim in Tampa : 1/14/2022 9:09 am : link
I wonder if the Giants record these Zoom meeting interviews?

If so they could go back and listen to each interview as many times as they'd like.

They could also edit all the interviews and then piece them back together to see how each candidate answered question #1, Q2, etc.

Seems like they've identified a number of great candidates. It might be tough for even the Giants to mess up this decision ;>)

I seriously doubt they record the interviews. Would be a strange thing to maintain and I can't imagine them going back and re-watching it to compare answers. I would expect they probably talk to the candidate and jot down notes.
Good question  
Blue92 : 1/14/2022 9:20 am : link
I would be interested to know that myself.

I would guess they also specifically ask for their thoughts on the Giants' roster, how they are thinking about the Giants' picks, at least at this point in time, how they would approach the draft.
Pretty sure they..

Meet for 30 minutes for a quick intro and boring football discussion then quickly head over to Stiletto for drinks and lap dances.

that, "I got the impression they wanted to be a running team."

I thought: Who is "they", who was in the room? The Maras, Abrams, Accorsi.

My further thought was that it almost had to be John Mara conveying that impression.

It would be interesting to be the proverbial fly to monitor whether and how the Maras drop hints of their own notions of what makes for a winning NFL team.

Perhaps events since 2017 will make them more circumspect in that regard. Perhaps.





They’re zoom calls first round  
jc in c-ville : 1/14/2022 11:34 am : link
So, three piece suit and underwear for candidates. I’m person for final round so I suppose pants will be worn.
Whatever it is

there will be a bunch of people here that think Mara did it wrong.

I would bet that Chris M is having a meal during the interview. And Tisch a few adult beverages

Results during the last decade speak for themselves. What percentage of Giants fans think they'll get all the hires right? We're 0 for our last 4...and they haven't been bad hires, they've been terrible.

be weird if they had a meal during their Zoom meeting interviews..
I imagine it would go a lot like

George Constanza interviewing students for the Susan Ross Foundation.

“What’s your favorite animal?”

“Uhhhh, I don’t know. Frog?”

ugh.. the obsession with running is really disheartening.
Giants are known to run a pretty intensive process...
