It is not an abnormal thing for an employer not to be able to interview ANY day after 3:30. Like many people have already told you, it is an employer's market. They have the upper hand. This isn't about right or wrong, it's about accepting how things are done and figuring out what hoops YOU (oops, I mean your wife) are willing to jump through to gain employment. With that sort of attitude, though, I question her chances in an already difficult market. Remember: what you are complaining about, many other people likely already said "yes" to without hesitation. I recently had to use two half personal days for interviews. No, the principal did not have any times available outside of the school day. I work in a school full time, but I did what I had to do in this case. Most of us do.
