Question ducking out of a job interview.

absolutely not car related [probably for the best i could rant for hours]

so i have a job interview next week.

as usual i've done a little bit of research on the company.

basically, the company director has 9 mortgages only one of which he is paying.

he has signed over most of the companies machinery to the bank so that debt collectors cannot sieze them

he is under investigation for numerous health and safety violations.
he's pilfered the pension fund to buy a yacht/golfcourse/racecar
numerous staff have made complaints about sexism/racism/poor treatment etc.

in short i'm looking to email the HR dept in the next few days and say

"no way am i working for a company like yours"

that been said the money/hours/location is good so i want to keep my options open should the proverbial hit the fan at my current company.

can anyone suggest a polite way of saying "i will not be attending the interview because i've looked you all up and you seem shady as hell"

i'm thinking some rubbish like
"accepted a position with another company"
or
"not in line with my career goals"


thoughts?

You might want to look at this page.....

Why & How to Refuse a Job Interview - WorkCoachCafe.com

The advice is generally, even if you don't think you want the job still go to the interview. At the end you can always say something like, 'Thanyou for the opportunity but I don't think the position is the right choice for me at this time'.

They recommend you don't give any reasons for your decision and certainly mentioning the things you've posted here could open a huge can of worms. Do not mention anything personal about the director as that could lead to a lot of heartache. Just say it's not the right position for you at this time.

There may well be warning flags regarding the directors conduct but for all we know, he may have a legitimate plan in place to rectify the situation. Just like ordianary people who get into finandial difficulties through no fault of their own and have to take the route of putting a debt management plan in place to allow them to get straightened out.

If you don't want to attend the interview then just say that your research has revealed it's not the position you are looking for and leave it at that.

Whatever you decide, all the best for the future. Hope it gets sorted out soon.
