To get one? Probably not
I understand that the first interview is conducted over the phone or Skype (I have both) and the second in person. Do candidates commonly ride Greyhound to and from this second interview? Or should candidates expect to endure the sexual overtones of U.S. airport security theater such as Rapiscan and enhanced patdowns?

Currently I use a bicycle in a (probably different) midwestern town to commute to and from the office where I work as a web application programmer.
