Default Red Flags to look out when you go for an interview or before accepting a job offer

Please share Red Flags to look out when you go for an interview or before accepting a job offer

-Interview with HR instead of hiring manager (Not interested in you)
-Office toilet is very messy (Shows that staff don't care)
-Bad reviews on Glassdoor/Jobstreet (For Jobstreet, bad reviews but the employers deletes them)
-High turnover of staff (Search for the job role on google to see how often the position gets posted)
-Pantry looks cheap (No staff welfare)
-Open-office concept or no cubicles (Micromanage, don't trust staff)
-Offering you the job on the spot or within the week (Desperate)
-HR not local
-Need to fill up employer application form with your education and grades

Offering you the job on the spot or within the week is desperate? So even if they really like you, you'd rather they play the waiting game to offer you the job a few weeks down the road?

Best bet is this -> Bad reviews on Glassdoor/Jobstreet (For Jobstreet, bad reviews but the employers deletes them).

I think those takes weeks and months to reply you are equally suspicious.

i thought this is a pretty standard process: -Need to fill up employer application form with your education and grades?
