Great post! You're absolutely right. The office tour is still part of the interview. They're checking how you connect with others and your professionalism in doing so. The interview begins BEFORE you sit down with the hiring manager (when the assistant calls you to set up time, when you arrive in the office lobby, etc.), so be on your "A" game the entire time. Hiring managers often ask receptionists, assistants, even maintenance staff what their impression of you is, so be professional and courteous! Keep up the great work.

Very true. The interview begins the minute you walk in the door. How you treat the receptionist, showing interest in any promotional materials in the lobby...that's all part of the interview. And they might also watch you as you pull out of the parking lot - are you a courteous driver?
