Giving feedback on why I declined a second interview?
Here's a table-turning situation: I was offered a take-home assignment and second interview for a job I'm not interested in moving forward with, the reasons being it feels like a huge backslide in my career path (and has the pay to go with it). I wrote this afternoon that I appreciated their consideration but I would like to withdraw my application for the role. The hiring manager / co-founder (it's a startup) has asked that I share feedback on why my mind changed and why I didn't want to continue further in the process. I should also mention, he said he would give me a $50 gift card if I completed the take-home assignment and agreed to another interview. While my mind was made up before this occurred, I thought this was really weird and soured me further against the role. Is there any benefit to being honest, that the role is beneath what I am really looking for at this time? Should I say it was weird to offer me a gift card for completing the take-home assignment and engaging in a second interview? Or should I ghost?
