I think everything you said is spot on. The only problem is having that tough conversation with my friend. Our relationship might not be the same if I told him I didn’t take the job
My friend described the job to me and I don’t know if I like it based of that. I thought it would make sense to go to the interview and hear from them
Might as well get the facts before deciding.
But can you decline a offer after the interview?
Sure. You listen to their offer, tell them you appreciate it and either say it doesn't really sound what you are looking for, or else ask for a day to think it over and then call them back and say the same thing.If it is a long interview - Google is notorious for full day interviews - and at some point it becomes clear that it is not the job for you, you can stop at that point, politely tell them you aren't interested, and save everyone's time. If it's just an hour or so you can wait until the end.
Thanks for the good info. I’m nervous that it would make my friend look bad. It might destroy our friendship because I didn’t take the job
